3 – Tampa Bay Lightning

The Tampa Bay Lightning might be the most talented team in the NHL. I am not saying they are going to win the Stanley Cup, but they do have the most talent. Last season the Lightning showed that they could dominate every team during the regular season, they did fall in the playoffs, but maybe they can prove they are a championship team this season.

The Blackhawks do not have the best chance at becoming a team like the Tampa Bay Lightning for a long time. They have too little assets, and they are going to have to start building now to get as much depth as the Lightning have.

Tampa looks like we did a few years ago when we were winning championships, oh, but they have nothing to show for it just yet! Every team in the NHL should look to have as many stars as the Lightning have, but that is not possible always.

Instead, teams look to let the way they play the game decide how they go out and pick their players. Both of the next two teams have a lot of talent, but it is the way they play the game that makes them so remarkably good.
