Lightning furniture on Craigslist

A good little find by John over at Raw Charge: Apparently the Tampa Bay Lightning have begun selling some furniture items on Craigslist, including this nifty trophy case (trophy replicas not included) for $300. There are believed to be more items available on the site, although the fact they're coming from the Lightning isn't exactly trumpeted in the ads and I can't say I'd recognize Jay Feaster's office chair if I saw it.

John has some solid thoughts on this:

"OK Hockey's reputation, however, makes it difficult to put away the tin foil hat and not think this has some link to financial troubles. They have cut tenured staff in cost savings attempts, are now charging building employees to park at the Forum, and the group has gotten the proverbial vote of confidence in its finances from Gary Bettman (such votes of confidence are usually tell-tale signs of trouble in the sports world). Tack on the recent stories about ownership looking for investors and it's really hard not to speculate."

Ultimately, it's only an old curio cabinet on sale on the 'net, so it may not mean much – even for the tinfoil hat crowd. For the sake of Tampa fans, hopefully it's not another sign the ownership group is hard up for cash – and the St. Pete Times Forum will remain furniture-filled come the fall.
