One last trade



The Lightning sent left wing Jan Hlavac to the Predators for a 2008 seventh-round draft pick. Hlavac was a big bust this season. Signed as a free agent to play on Brad Richards' line, Hlavac had just nine goals and 22 points in 62 games.

GM Jay Feaster said he also had calls about left wing Andre Roy, but turned them down because he wants to re-sign Andre.

He also said he likely will try to re-sign center Chris Gratton. It was thought Gratton was one of those potential unrestricted free agents who would be moved. But Feaster said he likes what Gratton has done this season, including playing most of the season with a very bad hip that slowed his production and he did not want to move an injured player . He also said Gratton has become a good leader in the locker room and has done about as well as expected.
