Team Explanation
Well. This changes things a little. Tampa isn't going to do anything until after the season starts.

Friedman
"TB's cap issues may be solved by LTIR. There is word Nikita Kucherov is battling an injury that may keep him out awhile. No comment from team/agent, so details are sketchy -- but clarity expected this week. If unable to play (unfortunately), it will clear room for the Lightning."

And when he's healthy they will be even more desperate to clear space. Yzerman put them in such a bad cap situation.

Yeah Yzerman did such a terrible job building this Tampa team. How could he not predict covid and a flat cap 4 years ago? His excellent drafting, shrewd trades and getting his own players locked up to below market value contracts have really crippled this franchise. Yzerman had nothing to do with Tampa winning the Cup. I just hope JBB can somehow undo the damage Yzerman has inflicted.

I dunno how much Kudos I give Stevie Y for the drafting since Al Murray has so much control over scouting. But you're right.

Did Al Murray trade for Ben Bishop, Ryan McDonagh or Sergachev? Did he sign Tyler Johnson as an undrafted Free agent? Did he acquire a first round pick from Ken Holland which turned into Vasilevskiy? Does the GM not have the final call when it comes to drafting players? It's funny how Tampa fans don't want to credit Yzerman for anything now that he's no longer Tampa GM. But when he was the Tampa GM he was viewed as a living God. Now he's a convenient scapegoat for Tampa's Cap mess. We hated winning a Cup! That damn Steve Yzerman! How dare he! Cheer for the laundry.
