Lightning Willing To Call Avalanche's Bluff

The Tampa Bay Lightning arent sure whether Joe Sakic is bluffing or not when he says the Avalanche will be taking a forward, not defenseman Seth Jones, with the first overall pick at the June 30 NHL draft.

Who knows what theyre thinking? Darryl Plandowski, the Lightnings head amateur scout, told the Tampa Bay Times. I think its smart of (Sakic) putting up a little controversy to get conversation going and people thinking. I saw one comment where someone said, Thats a big smokescreen, and that might be. But hes got the No. 1 pick. He can do what he wants.
