Breaking: Mark Recchi Signs With Lightning (And a J. Smith Rumor Killer)

July 7, 2008, 8:25 PM ET [ Comments]

***Update 8:43 PM***

Scratch Jason Smith completely ... He will not be coming to Tampa, I've just been assured.

Someone missed a signal with that information earlier and that's okay once, I guess.

The terms on Recchi, as per TSN: 1 year, $1.25 million, potentially $1.5 with incentives.


Mark Recchi has signed a 1-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

That's right - another forward.

And my thinking now is that the message I received earlier may have confused a couple of players and their negotiations with the club.

Cue the watch for some forwards to be dealt out of Tampa real soon ...

More when I get it ...
