Future not so bright

The Bolts suck this year and rank 25th in NHL Organization Rankings. This may be a long term project.

"Strengths: The Lightning have a nice quartet of highly-skilled forward prospects in Brett Connolly, Carter Ashton, Richard Panik, and Vladislav Namestnikov. Radko Gudas and Mark Barberio have a ways to go, but are interesting options on the backend. In goal, Dustin Tokarski is a competitor that has worked his way to success at every level. Weaknesses: The Lightning system is extremely thin with little depth at any position, particularly defense. They have no top-pairing defenders, and only a handful that project as even NHL defensemen. Outside of their forwards, the system has no top-end talent. Top 5 prospects: 1. Brett Connolly, C, 2. Richard Panik, LW, 3. Vladislav Namestnikov, C, 4. Carter Ashton, RW, 5. Radko Gudas, D"
