Lightning Sign Justin Fletcher

Also in today's St. Pete Times, Damian Crisdotero breaks down the Lightning system by NHL readiness. One surprise on the list: defenseman Justin Fletcher from St. Cloud State who played well during an ATO stint with the Springfield Falcons at the end of last season. According to Crisdotero, Fletcher has signed a one year deal with the Lightning organization.

There have also been rumors that the Lightning are interested in bringing Falcons tryout forward Jacob Micflikier into the fold in Norfolk as well, although nothing substantial has surfaced as of yet.

Fletcher: 1yr, 475k

Per the canoncial NHL salary cap source: http://www.geocities.com/rmccleary97/

Of course, that is his NHL salary and he is on a two-way contract. I suppose we add him to the prospects lists...

I've added Fletcher to the

I've added Fletcher to the overage prospects section (he's 24 already) and created a skeleton profile.

My guess is Fletcher means Atherton doesn't get signed.

Egener

Egener is conspiciously absent from that list. Damian must not have gotten an indication from any of the Lightning brass that he's still in the picture. It was a minor surprise (although I personally like some of the things he shows) to see Brandon Elliot on the chart.

There are some funky issues

There are some funky issues with this depth chart. Is Lascek really behind Brandon Elliot? I kind of doubt it.

Norm Milley is still in the picture? I was thinking he'd take the fall for the debacle in Springfield last season along with Corso and Healey.

Is Eggs even going to be re-signed? There's the more interesting question if you read into this.
