The Lightning have one of the league's best offenses, which can help them in the plus/minus department.

Plus-minus ratings can be one of the more telling statistics in the NHL. For the Tampa Bay Lightning, plus-minus hasn’t been a great statistic in recent years. This year, under coach John Cooper’s system, there are a few players that will be more successful than others.

Of the 22 skaters to appear for the Lightning this season, only four have a negative rating. It’s early, but that is a significant improvement from the 12 minus-rated players last season.

With inexperienced players and coaches, there will be some tough lumps to take—like the 5-0 loss to Boston on Oct. 19. But, the Lightning have a strong enough offense to make up for some of the lows. 

Here are the five players that will have the best plus-minus rating in 2013-14.
