Lightning Strikes

Ryan Malone and Gary Roberts are going to sign with the the Tampa Bay Lightning according to Sportsnet. Malone has agreed to terms with Tampa Bay on a seven-year deal that is worth more than $31 million. An announcement should come tomorrow. Roberts is also said to have reached an agreement for a one-year deal worth around $2 million but that has not been confirmed and his agent denies it. You can read the article at the Trib here.

Wow. That's a lot of money for Ryan Malone. Around $4.5 million a year. We guess he got his payday. It's also been reported that his father Greg, has been or is going to be hired by Tampa Bay as a head scout. We don't really know what to say. And this massive headache probably isn't helping things along to well so we apologize for the lack of info and insight.

Moving on, Jarkko Ruutu understands what it's like in this business and understands both sides. He does want to remain with the Penguins though. You can read the Post-Gazette article here.

Random YouTube of the day, Sidney Crosby in a Reebok commercial. We're so uncreative today. Sorry for the lack of quality here but we think our head might explode. Time for sleep. Good night!
