Found February 02, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
from Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times, The final two games of the Lightning’s four-game home stand — and perhaps its upcoming three-game road trip — will go a long way in determining if the team buys or sells at the Feb. 27 trade deadline, GM Steve Yzerman said. “Depending on how many points we get out of it and we see what else happens around the league, we’ll get a better indication,” he said Thursday. Eight teams had scouts credentialed for Thursday’s game, including the Penguins, who reserved seats for pro scout Andre Savard and director of pro scouting Derek Clancy. There have been plenty of rumors about whom the Lightning might be willing to move in trade with D Pavel Kubina, LW Ryan Malone and C Dominic Moore being mentioned most. Kubina has been linked to the Ranges and Flames, Malone to the Kings (with the speculated return being G Jonathan Bernier) and Moore to the Penguins and Senators. continued
