That way, it'd still convey the inaugural season motif, but allow for the full spectrum of players.

I'm thinking an awesome backstory would be: When the Lightning first started, all of us were on HFB and had avatars that bore utterly insane predictions for what we thought the team, league, and world's future would be over the next 20 years. 2012-13 arrives and we revisit those avatars to see how our predictions played out. Either correct or not.

Vincent LeCavalier will be drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
2004 is going to be totally rad.
A 2-year old in Markham is going to become the face of our franchise. U Can't Touch This will be his goal song.
Brent Gretzky will be better than his brother.
MC Hammer's popularity has already peaked.
Terry Crisp will still have the most games coached in team history.
Espo will have a statue outside wherever the Bolts are playing then.
TB will have gotten a MLB team and the Thunderdome will have become it's stadium.
bro. dude. bro.
