Tampa Bay Lightning sign defenseman Brett Clark

The Lightning didn’t stay quiet too long, dipping back into the free agent market after a two-day break for the holiday weekend, signing Brett Clark to a two-year contract, UPDATE Salary looks like it’s $2.6 million total, or $1.3 million per year UPDATE . Sounds like a good signing, somebody who skates well and moves the puck. Could be a good fit for a Guy Boucher, up-tempo system. Had decent numbers in Colorado the past few years, should slot in as a No. 5 I would think at this point behind Ohlund, Hedman, Kubina and Lundin.
Lot of defensemen starting to stack up right now, have to wonder where guys like Lashoff, Smaby, Mihalik fit it at this point, although Lashoff might be a good fit with his skating ability.

CORREX: OK, I’ve been corrected on the actual salaries for Clark, he will make $3 million total, $1.7 million this season and $1.3 million next season for a cap hit of $1.5 million.
Man, I really wish either the team or the PA would just come out and announce what the acutal numbers are, too much interest in salary cap nowadays with teams.
