CNN Sports Illustrated* power rankings:
#26 Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning were something of a mess last year after going to Game 7 of the conference finals in 2011. The addition of defenseman Matt Carle and some expected improvement from Victor Hedman will help the blue line, which was atrocious. But Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier, while still highly skilled, aren't getting any younger and Anders Lindback must prove he can be a reliable starter in net. Steven Stamkos probably has the best pure shot in the game, though, and he makes these guys dangerous on any given night.
*Does Bleacher Report already cover the NHL for them? Would explain #3.
