In the next few weeks, I will be going through the Tampa Bay Lightning’s keys to the season.  There will be ten huge points which will determine whether the Bolts have a successful season or another roadblock.  There were many problems with last year’s squad that can be rectified with a few alterations by the new team this year.  People probably can look at a few glaring weaknesses like Goal-tending and defense as a weakness but there are a few more that take a little bit more digging in order to figure out.  I believe that if the points that I bring up can be accomplished then the Lightning will be in for a great year.  On Friday the first key to next season will be brought out and it is probably the most important one; it has to do with the “negotiations” going on right now.

Until then, give me your thoughts on specific keys you think will be integral to the Bolts getting back to the playoffs next year.
