Tyler Johnson's full no-trade clause will kick in on July 1st.
If the Lightning aren't convinced they want to have him around long term, they will have to consider moving him before that date. The 27-year-old is scheduled to make $5 million per season for the next five years, so that's a significant financial commitment for a team that will have to pay some of its stars in the near future. Johnson had 21 goals and 50 points in 81 games with the Lightning this season. There's a chance he could be on the move at some point this offseason. May 26 - 9:19 AM
