We'll take these
With the Tampa Bay Lightning's training camp coming to a close, the past few days were spent trying to get the players who may or may not start the season with the team.
In a sense, then, a beggar shouldn't be a chooser. You're happy with what you get -- from big-name players right on down to kids being sent back to the juniors.
In this case, though, the motivation was to put a bigger dent in the seasonlong Lots of the Lightning project. And, as you can see, the rest of the wish list got a little shorter.
The pucks came from Riku Helenius, Tampa Bay Lightning old logo puck; and Olaf Kolzig, 2000 NHL All Star Game and Washington Capitals eagle pucks. The card, signed by injured center Jeff Halpern, came from one of two four-card strips given away at the end of the 2007-08 season.
