Bolts Ink Malone, Roberts? + Acquire Rolston's Rights

Ryan Malone has agreed to a 7-year, $31.5 million deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Lightning had traded with Pittsburgh to acquire the rights to Malone and Gary Roberts yesterday.

Rumours are swirling that Roberts has also agreed to a deal with Tampa Bay, one-year worth $2 million.

The Lightning capped off a very busy night by trading with Minnesota to acquire the negotiating rights to Brian Rolston. The deal will send Minny a conditional pick in either the 2009 or 2010 draft, depending on whether Rolston signs with the Lightning.
