Lightning acquire Lindback from Predators.

Various sources reports the Tampa Bay Lightning have dealt goalie Sebastien Caron, two second-round draft picks (37th and 50th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, a 2013 third-round selection to the Nashville Predators in exchange for goalie Anders Lindback, forward Kyle Wilson, and a seventh round pick in 2012.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: If the reports Lightning GM Steve Yzerman was seeking a promising young goalie to grow with his team are anything to go by, this move likely takes them out of the market for a goaltending upgrade. Should Lindback reach the potential he’s believed capable of, he could become a star for the Lightning. He was never going to get the opportunity to be a starter in Nashville, and now has a golden opportunity with a Lightning club that desperately needed an upgrade between the pipes.
