Tampa Bay Lightning

Which Tampa forwards could be dealt?

From Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated:

That said, it wouldn’t be surprising to see another addition to the group at some point. With so many bodies up front on one-way deals, a trade or two seems inevitable. Jussi Jokinen, acquired last spring in the Richards deal, lost his second line pivot job to Stamkos and is the most likely body to be moved. Michel Ouellet, a versatile forward who doesn’t seem to have a spot in Tampa’s top six and is far less effective in a lesser role, is another good bet.

Jokinen would be a good fit on a number of teams, including the forward needy Canucks. Oullet wouldn’t fetch as much on the trade market as Jokinen, but there is sure to be some kind of market for his services too.
