TB was one of only 4 teams I believe with 5 20 goal scorers and that was with two of them being injured for a chunk of the season. On top of that we have some very good prospects coming down the pipeline between this year and next.
If its one thing the Lightning have, it's depth at forward.
I think it has a lot to do with the 3rd line.
The top 6 is prob one of the better ones in the NHL right now. The 4th line is good, who really nitpicks 4th lines anyways? I really like Pyatt/Thompson/Hall/Tyrell.
The 3rd line could improve in the scoring department a bit. I think a lot of it has to do with not having a good 3rd center right now. Dominic Moore would be nice to have back. He's not spectacular offensively, but if he has decent wingers he really anchors a 3rd line well (see the Bergenheim/Moore/Downie line from last yrs playoffs).
If we get Moore back I'll really like our top 9:
Purcell // Stamkos // St. Louis
Malone // Lecavalier // Brown
Conacher // Moore // Brunner
