07:45 AM ET 01.28 | Tampa Bay fans may have some extra incentive to watch Switzerland's games during the upcoming Olympics in Sochi. Swiss star Reto Suri still is on the Lightning's radar. Assistant general manager Julien BriseBois said he and Tampa Bay development coach Stacy Roest, Suri's teammate in Switzerland from 2010-12, earlier this month scouted the talented wing, who plays for Zug in the Swiss-A league. The Lightning tried to sign Suri last year, but the deal was rejected by the Swiss federation because it does not have a transfer agreement with the NHL. ... The assumption is Suri is trying to buy out his contract or establish some sort of out option. His agent declined comment. But the web site swisshockeynews.ch reported such a clause has been worked out.
