Simply put the flyers have the personnel whereas the Lightning didn't
It should also be mentioned that under Tocchet's watch, Stamkos was given a chance to play and he started to light it up in the second half of his rookie season. Barry Melrose nearly ruined Stamkos and Rick Tocchet saved his career. I'd be more than willing to give Tocchet a chance here.
