If the Tampa Bay Lightning were on the stock market, shares would be collapsing after reaching a season high two weeks ago. The Bolts have dropped four straight games and been outscored 17-6 in that span, but that can't detract from their current fourth-place spot.
The team effort has been solid, but the top-six forwards have put together some solid early-season performances as well. With Steven Stamkos on the shelf for the foreseeable future, the Lightning have been able to slide new players into that position.
Each top-six forward has an individual stock to keep an eye on. From the point production to defensive awareness, the strongest forward lines have kept the Lightning as one of the top 10 offenses in the league (2.78 goals per game).
Keeping the longer-term impact of Stamkos' injury in mind, here is the stock report for each of the Lightning's top-six forwards.
