Andre Roy claimed by Tampa Bay

Since I forgot to mention it earlier...

The Tampa Bay Lightning have claimed Andre Roy off of waivers from the Penguins.

He was claimed off of re-entry waivers, which makes the Pens responsible for half of his remaining salary and half of his salary next year (about $375,000 this year and $500,000 next year).

Remember when the Pens played the Lightning earlier this year and their coach (Tortelli) was bemoaning the loss of Roy? Now he has him back.

Looks like they sent down Welch and brought up two baby pens d-men. I don't know much about them but Welch was not looking good to me so I hope these new guys bring a spark to the team... they really need it.
