A year after finishing one win shy of the Stanley Cup final, the Tampa Bay Lightning were cursed with bad goaltending, finishing with eight fewer wins and outside of the playoffs. But GM Steve Yzerman spent the summer upgrading his problem areas on defense and in net – so are the Lightning contenders again?

Today’s Puck Panel looks at the high-powered Lightning, led by 60-goal man Steven Stamkos, his partner on offense Martin St-Louis and now Matt Carle on the blueline. We look at the good and bad of Tampa Bay and explain why THN predicted them to finish sixth in the Eastern Conference.
