Russianprospects.com [url=http://www.russianprospects.com/public/index.php]is speculating that Anton But
may be close to signing a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.[/url] The rumor comes on the heels of But's release from his long-time club Yarolslavl where he won two championships and was a perennial Superleague All-Star. A potential deal might require the Lightning to move a player off their 50-man roster to accomodate But. Because he is not under contract at present he would be free of any potential entanglements due to the lack of an IIHF transfer agreement with Russia.
