A quick defenseman deal between the Senators and the Lightning, which sees Matt Gilroy, a potential unrestricted free agent head to Ottawa for a slowly-developing Brian Lee, who has seen some time with the big club, but not enough.

The Senators get a little bit more touch offensively from Gilroy, they'll give him a try for the stretch run, possibly giving him some power play time, which could help the Sens win an extra playoff game.

The Lightning get another young defenseman in Lee, who has some offensive upside, but they have been revamping their blueline with more youth, possibly in a move to just get younger and not worry about the playoffs.

ImplicationsGilroy is the only one of the two who is involved the pools, in the selection sheet, and given his numbers and possibly some potential down the line, he might still have an outside shot at the playoff pool. Otherwise, not much going on in this deal either.
