07:35 AM ET 02.03 | In a way, two deadlines loom this season, one before Sochi and one after. The Lightning is in an interesting place when it comes to the trade deadline. Thanks to injured defensemen Mattias Ohlund and Brian Lee being on long-term injured reserve, it has about $3 million of cap space. It also will be getting back injured star Steven Stamkos before or after the break. ... That means general manager Steve Yzerman can concentrate on adding blue-line depth or, if he wants to try to go big, a top-four player to really add some stability. There are a couple of intriguing options, neither of which has been linked publicly to the Lightning but perhaps merit some consideration: the Islanders' Andrew MacDonald and Detroit's Kyle Quincey. MacDonald, 27, would be a thrilling addition.

"Thrilling" must mean something different in Tampa.

Needs to be in the bank by 10 AM so you can get dinner at 3:30! (Sometimes I eat late; at 4 or so).

This guy at the TBTimes must be a refugee from intelligence at Sin-compost-pac. Light-dung don't need anyone - unless it's someone good, and quite tough.
