The Tampa Bay Lightning and restricted free-agent forward Brayden Point are "not remotely close" to agreeing on a new contract, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

LeBrun added that he's sure a deal will get done, but that there's been little progress to date.

Point is arguably the most prolific unsigned RFA on the market, though cases could be made for Mitch Marner, Mikko Rantanen, Matthew Tkachuk, and Patrik Laine. The Lightning pivot racked up 41 goals and 92 points in 79 games during the 2018-19 season.

The Bolts have $8.48 million remaining in projected cap space, according to CapFriendly.
