What will the team be named?
Will the Lightning affiliate with them to help grow the sport in the state and expand their footprint in the Orlando area?
You've found most of these answers already. The team has not been named, as that may be a factor in an affiliation.
I'd imagine the Lightning would definitely investigate the idea of affiliation, if not already be on board. That may be a reason why we seem to have a smaller footprint with the Everblades this season and signed on with them so late.
The question remaining is, are they going to make me GM, or someone else?
