Will the Eagle Land in Tampa?

A quick rumor before I sign off for the night. Apparently the Bolts are looking very hard at Belfour. Last year there was almost a done deal between the Lightning and Toronto that would have sent Modin to the Leafs in exchange for "The Eagle." That obviously didn't happen. Now with the deadline looming and Florida out of the hunt, it looks like Feaster has renewed interest in the veteran net minder. This is a rumor that might have some legs. Tampa and Florida have done a lot of business in the past (Dan Boyle, anyone?), so I wouldn't be surprised to see this one go down. Florida looks poised to dump some major salaries in Jokinen, Bertuzzi and Roberts, so I would imagine Belfour would be fair game as well.
