Nope. Teams with a traditionally horrible goal differential are not real contenders. Plus Tampa has no goaltending or defence. Salo is injury prone and Carle is a giveaway machine, plus Hedman hasn't lived up to all the hype. Conacher is a fluke too.

The jury is out on Lindback till we see how he does over a full season. For all we know he can be the next Kippersoff

Nope. He's terrible and the Lightning gave up way too much for him. Yzerman is the worst GM in league history and hockey in Florida is an abomination anyway. Stamkos is one-dimensional, Hedman is a bust, Marty is too old, and Vinny has the worst contract in the history of pro sports.

Think we will make the playoffs. Lindback will have some problems come playoff time as it will be his very first post season hes played in the NHL. Expect us to finish strong in the season, probably get past the first round in the playoffs.....not expecting much after that.

It's funny, last year I was alone predicting they'd miss the playoffs, this year I'm definitely in the minority that they are 100% for real and will definitely make the playoffs.

No, they are in Tampa! Not in NY, Bos, Pitt, or any Canadian team. They won't win anything.

They are in the mix, but I am not sold on the 4-6 defenseman (I guess 7 & 8 are worse). Plus Hedman looks a lot better, but still has an implosion or two a game. The offense looks legit though without a doubt.

Even if they were for real, who cares? What would winning in a 48 game season really prove?

Your right. They should have announced to everybody this season doesn't count. Actually it goes without saying. I guess TB didn't get the memo.

The league doesn't even send those memos to Florida teams, why bother?

You forgot that Lecavalier is over the hill and the team doesn't forecheck.

The top 4 of Hedman, Salo, Carle, and Brewer has been very good.

Aulie has been great as the #5, although the #6 spot is still up for grabs...

What team is completely satisfied with their #6 dman though?

Uh what? I've seen every game this season. He's been the Lightning's best player so far.

Well I wouldn't expect anybody outside of FL to care besides the people who are die hard hockey fans and truly appreciate the game. But those guys in TB care and are a lot of fun to watch. This fan is enjoying this 48 game season.

He's the second coming of Martin St. Louis.

Lindback is still unproven.
Stamkos is one dimensional and a product of St. Louis.
St. Louis is too old and a product of Stamkos.
Purcell is a product of Lecavalier, Stamkos, and St. Louis.
Lecavalier has a horrible contract and is getting worse by year.
Hedman isn't developing like he should be.
Salo is too injury prone.
Carle sucks.
Brewer sucks.
Idk how Conacher is even in the same discussion as Tarasenko.
This team doesn't even forecheck.

I think that covers just about all of it.

Oh, and they play in the Southeast.

Nope. Southleast team that will squeak in by virtue of playing in the worst division in the NHL. Plus, hockey in Florida? The hell is that about?

He has 3 HHOFers in his family and he's better than all of them combined.
