Tampa Makes Another Minor Deal

According to the ticker on TSN, the Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired rights to Olaf Kolzig, Jamie Heward and a 4th rounder from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Richard Petiot.

TSN is analyzing that this is basically a way for Tampa to dump $500k in salary for the rest of the year and in return they receive a 4th round pick. Since the NHL doesn't allow cash swapping anymore, this is essentially a way to trade cash for a pick.
