The Lightning have signed Anton Stralman to a five-year deal worth $22.5 million.
Stralman had 13 points (1G / 12A) in 81 games with the Rangers this season. The Lightning freed up a lot of cap-space ahead of July 1st, and they gave Stralman a nice contract. The 27-year-old Swede had a strong postseason and will be a reliable defenseman on the Lightning blueline for the next few years.
Just from talking to Stralman Saturday, I don't think he will play tmrw vs. NYI. Think Sat in MTL more realistic option. #NYR
It was originally believed that Stralman would replace Jeff Woywitka but the latter has been relatively serviceable. If you own Stralman, consider waiting for a few more games before inserting him into your lineup.
