Lightning beat writer from the Tampa Tribune Erik Erlendsson joined Booger and Rich to discuss just how real the Marty St. Louis trade rumors are getting.
Erlendsson said that this year the team is a contender and the Lightning would derail their season by trading Marty St. Louis. This is so unlike St. Louis and Erlendsson said the sad part is that he’s letting his involvement in the Olympics affect him professionally with the Lightning.
To Erlendsson, there’s nothing other than getting left off Team Canada that could’ve gotten St. Louis upset enough to want a trade. To him, Erlendsson says St.Louis has to be a professional and move on from not being named to Team Canada.
Jeff Vinik reached out to St. Louis after he was left off Team Canada. Erlendsson said he could do so again in theory to help patch things up.
