The 2012-13 NHL season showcased the number of superstars on the Tampa Bay Lightning. When the Lightning take the ice for the 2013-14 season, its stars will be looking to perform better and reach new heights after a disappointing 2012-13 season.
The Bolts had the top-two scorers in the NHL last season in Martin St. Louis and Steven Stamkos, and St. Louis became the oldest player to bring home the Art Ross Trophy. Overall, the shortened season shouldn’t be blamed for a lack of success as a team.
Tampa Bay has enough stars in the lineup to win games and if each one performs their best-case scenarios next season, the Bolts should be in better position to fight for a playoff spot.
