Bolts have the firepower to strike twice.

When your team ices Steven Stamkos it’s hard for the opposition to contain such a great scorer, let alone one who has the help of an elite playmaker like Martin St-Louis. Although Lecavalier (PHI) was bought out, they did choose to fill in the skill void by drafting Jonathan Drouin who will be given the opportunity to play immediately. Although signing winger Valtteri Filppula could help the Bolts with some second line duties, it was also a great help that they were able to use Teddy Purcell efficiently last season. Hopefully, he has not just provided a flash but proof that he can be a threat on offense for the Tampa team. Along with young forward Alex Killorn,  the Lightning do have some young talent to stage this year, as do the fans who plan on watching them live.

However what remains to be seen is how well their D can hold the opposition. Although they are a productive team, they’ve had trouble keeping the puck out of the net during the last few seasons. Matt Carle and Victor Hedman are the big names on the blue line and it will be up to them to step up their game to the next level.  They also have veteran presences with Sami Salo and Eric Brewer who naturally lose a step with age but as defencemen, it’s better to have NHL experience than inexperience. Two watch are youngsters Mark Barberio and Radko Gudas on defense. Both are players who could make a permanent jump into the NHL this season, given the Bolts need on the blue line.

Two seasons ago the Bolts made a deal to get Anders Lindback from the Predators and last season the Bolts dealt Cory Conacher to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Ben Bishop. Both goalies have shown good potential as backups although neither has strung together enough games to be considered a legitimate number 1, (Lindback career high GP is 24 and that was last year.)



In what was a much anticipated NHL Draft, Marc Bergevin and the Montreal Canadiens addressed the lack of size and character by selecting Michael McCarron #25 overall. Join Corey Collard, Kamal Panesar, Nick Murdocco and Coach K as they breakdown the picks and discuss some of the trades from the draft floor, and rumours floating around the NHL.
