Tampa Bay Lightning At The 2011 NHL Trade Deadline: Rumors, Needs And Expectations

First-year GM Steve Yzerman added a No. 1 goalie when he acquired Dwayne Roloson on New Year's Day to shore up the Lightning between the pipes. He then bolstered the defense last week by acquiring Blues captain Eric Brewer for a pick and a prospect. Does Yzerman want, or need, anything else?

Status: Buyer/Stand Pat

Needs: Scoring wing

Prediction: Ryan Malone is on the shelf, so Tampa Bay is a little thin on the wing right now. But Yzerman has already played his cards in acquiring Brewer and Roloson, and Malone should be back. Yzerman is probably done and ready to see what his team is capable of in the postseason.
