What the heck is this? 15 games? Is ownership on speed?
I didnt think Melrose would be a good fit there in the first place, but 15 games? They were dead last in their division last year and only got 71 pts. This isn't NHL 09 where you bring good stats together and they add up...players need to get along and play well together.

WAKE UP OWNERSHIP! This move makes the lightning look pretty bad.
