The Tampa Bay Lightning are the hottest team in the NHL right now and are looking to solidify their lineup. Brooks reported that the Lightning are working on a package of young forward prospects and drafts picks to the Rangers for Georgiev and upcoming UFA Chris Kreider.

In 2018 The New York Rangers shipped then captain Ryan McDonagh and J.T Miller to the Bolts for a 1st round pick, Brett Howden, Vlad Namestnikov and a prospect.
