The Tampa Bay Lightning are a young team whose championship window opened just last season and could stay there for years to come. While the Lightning fell short of their goal last season, falling to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Final, the Lightning remain a very dangerous team that will only continue to get better with young scorers and 50 point getters. Tampa was last season’s top scoring team with four 20 goal scorers, a top defenseman in Victor Hedman and a combined 199 points, which was tops in the league. The Lightning will have to deal with the contract status of Steven Stamkos, whose deal expires at the end of year with hopes of re-signing one of the best scorers in the league.
