The Lightning have gotten the ball rolling with the trades with trade just before puck drop tonight. Even though this morning it was all Kubina talk, today Dominic Moore was traded to the San Jose Sharks with a 7th round pick in 2012 for a 2nd round pick in the 2012 draft. San Jose's pick has been previously acquired from Minnesota.
The announcement came just a little bit before the two teams faced off against each other tonight. But no weirdness on the ice as Moore didn't play for the Sharks tonight.
I liked Moore, thought he worked hard and was pretty good in his role on the team. But as a UFA and the Lightning looking more and more like they are looking to rebuild with picks, this was expected.
This gives the Lightning three picks in the 2nd round of the 2012 entry draft and confirms that we are selling baby.
