NHL Rumors IV: Lightning – Lindback, Brodeur, Callahan and Richards
- Updated: June 21, 2014
- Joe Smith: Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said they are considering re-signing goaltender Anders Lindback. The Lightning like Andrei Vasilevskiy and Kristers Gudlevskis, but they want them to play. Ben Bishop will carry a heavy load as the teams No. 1 goalie.
- Jim Matheson: Matheson can see the Lightning taking a took at Martin Brodeur as a potential backup to Ben Bishop.
- Joe Smith: Yzerman said they’ve had some “really good discussions” with Ryan Callahan and are hopeful that they can get a deal done by July 1st.
- Joe Smith: Brad Richards agent said that Richards would “certainly respond positively to interest from Tampa.” Unclear if there is a fit in Tampa.
- Joe Smith: Not sure if Brad Richards would be a fit for the Lightning. They do have lots of younger forwards and some more veteran leadership.
