Tampa Bay Lightning loses goalie Curtis McElhinney to Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators claimed Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Curtis McElhinney off waivers.

So, the upshot of the trade of goalie Dan Ellis to the Ducks is that the Lightning is out from under Ellis' contract, particularly the $1.5 million he is owed for next season, a price the team obviously was not willing to pay.

Had McElhinney, who had really struggled this season in Anaheim, especially lately, not been claimed, he would have been assigned to the minors. He was not in the Lightning's plans.
