The collapse of the Tampa Bay Lightning this season prompt some high priorities for the offseason.

The Tampa Bay Lightning’s promising start to the season quickly took a downward turn and led to head coach Guy Boucher’s firing. With a new coach―Jon Cooper―in place, the Lightning look toward the offseason with five priorities if they want to compete for a playoff spot next season.

On Feb. 2, the Lightning held the top spot in the Eastern Conference with a 6-1-0 record. Boston and Ottawa were a point behind (11), and the Pittsburgh Penguins were sitting in eighth place.

A lot has changed since the first few weeks of the season. Tampa Bay keeps on improving their lottery pick chances with every game as they continue to fall down the league standings. The Bolts are 2-6-2 in the last 10 games and sit 28th in the league standings.
