  1. The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded defenseman Ryan McDonagh to the Nashville Predators for Philippe Myers and Grant Mismash, both teams made the announcement on Sunday. Ben Hankinson, McDonagh’s agent said:” It’s tough, he’s been there 4 years, won a couple Cups, been to (the Cup Final) 3 years in a row. All of a sudden, to be told, ‘You’re not coming back, it’s a business decision, we can’t have you back,’ it’s hard for him to accept that. There’s the emotional connection and the business side of it. It took what seemed like forever, only 3 or 4 days, but they wanted to move forward. He’s heard from every single member of the (Lightning). Crushing.”
