Yzerman is appealing, and his staff. I think they will be proactive and entertaining. And Yzerman will probably be able to lure free agents and so on based on his notoriety/charisma.
The Bolts also have cap space. In Tampa Bay, I guess they have an internal cap that will keep them below? But as the Montreal Lightning, that cap space becomes usable.
Anyway, the Bolts have ample cap space to spruce up their bottom-6 forwards and end up looking as good as/better than the Habs in that department, so I wouldn't hold that against them.
In goal... well, we're better *IF* Price steps up the way we think he can. But that's not proven yet.
I like the Habs' prospects better.
Stamkos and Hedman are probably reasonable reasons to take the Bolts. I wouldn't begrudge anybody choosing in either direction, really.
