The Tampa Bay Lightning had a very busy NHL Trade Deadline, as well as the 11 day leading up to it. Our Lightning blog Raw Charge has a complete recap of the past couple of weeks in Lightning-land and all the moves they've made. here is the basic in-and-out of all the players that made a move for the Lightning.
The Lightning have added: defensemen Keith Aulie, Mike Commodore, Brian Lee and Sebastien Piche, forwards Jon Kalinski, Brendon Segal and Tim Wallace and a 2012 1st round, one definite 2012 2nd round, one 2012 or 2013 2nd round and one 2012 4th round draft pick.
In exchange for: Defensemen Matt Gilroy and Pavel Kubina, forwards Carter Ashton, Steve Downie, Matt Fornataro and Dominic Moore, a 7th round pick in the 2012 and a possible 7th round draft pick in 2013.
The Lightning find themselves six spots out of the playoff race, and the performance of some of the new guys will help decide if they are able to squeeze in by the end of the year.
