According to today's [i]Springfield Republican[/i], goaltender Sean Burke was put on re-entry waivers Sunday by the Lightning in the hope that another team claims him and takes on half of his salary. In other moves, the Falcons sent Lightning prospects Stanislav Lascek, Gerald Coleman, and Morgan Cey to Johnstown of the ECHL, which means the goaltending situation in Springfield is settled with Karri Ramo and Jonathan Boutin. The [i]Republican[/i] states that coach Steve Stirling has not decided on a starter for Saturday night's opener, however. There is also a chance Burke could be sent back down to Springfield before week's end.
