Every day this month, one NHL team will be posting a season preview. It’s a good way for you, the Flyers fans, to know what we’re up against this season as we hope to break the Stanley Cup drought. Today we have the Tampa Bay Lightning.
First, let’s cover the essentials. The Bolts didn’t bring in too much new fire power but that’s not to say that the team’s new acquisitions this year aren’t to be given a chance. Here is the breakdown player by player.
Vladislav Namestnikov: This year’s first-round pick for the Lightning, and 27th overall in the NHL, Namestnikov, only 18-years-old, already has history with the team, being the nephew of former Red Wing and teammate of Steve Yzerman, Slava Kozlov.
