14. Tampa Bay Lightning

Previous: No. 3

Yeah, if Steven Stamkos can actually stay healthy for a full season, the Lightning will have an incredible young forward corps to that could challenge for Eastern supremacy. I just don’t buy the goaltending situation, and goaltending wins championships in the NHL. Andrei Vasilevskiy has shown promise, but is he a true No. 1 right now. Preseason returns are fine (.935/2.02), but I want to see more.
