Martin St. Louis is producing at an absurd level. He is the most dangerous weapon the Lightning have.
Strengths: Skill, Scoring, Creativity, Passing
This line is by far the most complete line for the Lightning. Teddy Purcell, Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis complement each other well. Stamkos and St. Louis provide the skill.
Purcell and St. Louis provide the creativity and passing. Stamkos and St. Louis are the best scorers on the team. This line is one of the more dangerous lines in the league.
Weaknesses: Too Much Creativity, One-on-one moves
This line is very creative in the offensive zone. The problem comes when they try to be creative in the neutral zone or defensive zones. This group is susceptible to turnovers that lead to odd-man rushes.
This line doesn’t have anyone that is a real one-on-one threat. St. Louis is the closest to it, but he finds the majority of his space through awareness and fancy passing. Stamkos is a shooter, and Purcell isn’t anything flashy one-on-one.
