07:17 AM ET 03.10 | Doug MacLean might end up in Tampa Bay after all. Apparently, MacLean is back in good graces with Lightning majority owner Oren Koules, even though MacLean and Florida real estate developer Jeff Sherrin sued Koules for $50 million when the group's Absolute Hockey Enterprise's venture fell apart in November. Koules broke apart from MacLean and Sherrin and formed his own group to buy the Lightning, prompting the lawsuit, which was settled for an undisclosed amount. OK Hockey's purchase was approved in January. MacLean, who was president and general manager of the Blue Jackets before his firing last April, has patched up any difference with Koules in recent weeks, according to NHL sources.
