Big transaction in the NHL.

The Lightning traded Mikhail Sergachev to Salt Lake City.

Yes, the same player who was traded for Jonathan Drouin in 2017…

In return, Julien BriseBois gets his hands on Connor Geekie, JJ Moser, a second-round pick in 2025 and the 199th pick in the 2024 draft.

Of course…

One has to wonder if the deal opens the door to a Steven Stamkos signing in Tampa Bay:

The Lightning doesn’t retain any salary in the deal… And also gets some good prospects for the next few years.

That’s good because Tampa Bay doesn’t have a huge bank of prospects.

A few weeks ago, the Lightning acquired Ryan McDonagh from the Predators.

They brought the defenseman back after sending him to Nashville two years ago… And I wonder how much impact that had in the decision to trade Sergachev to Salt Lake City.

Bill Armstrong wasn’t done shopping, though: John Marino was also acquired by the team.

The Devils receive the 49th pick in the draft (Mikhail Yegorov) and a second-round pick in 2025:

More details to come…
