Who Says Tampa Is Ignoring Their Blueline?

From the Regina Leader-Post comes word that a former Caps' rearguard is heading to Bolts' camp next week:

"Jamie Heward is giving it one more shot.

"The 37-year-old Regina product is slated to depart this weekend for training camp with the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning, who've offered him a free-agent tryout."

I'm actually rooting for Heward, one of the good guys to come through D.C. in recent years, and not just because I think it'll help the Caps, so I'll resist the obvious "Making the Lightning as a defenseman... so easy a caveman could do it" joke. Oops.
