What they're saying:

Instead of trading away guys pre-puck drop, the Lightning have picked up forward Tim Wallace off of waivers. Maybe we just like former Pittsburgh Penguins, or we're hoping for a 2nd Alaskan assassin..but this should mean that one of the Norfolk guys will be sent down back to the AHL.
