#ESPNplayerNHL: Lightning's best?

Douglas Jones/USA TODAY Sports

Attention, Lightning fans: We need to hear from you.

We want to know whom you consider the face of the Tampa Bay franchise.

The team has played 21 seasons, won one Stanley Cup and made seven postseason appearances.

Which player has meant the most to the team during that time?

Is the current leader of the team, Steven Stamkos, already the ultimate franchise player? Are the heroes of the not-so-distant past -- Martin St. Louis, Vincent Lecavalier and Brad Richards -- still the Lightning's biggest stars?

Now it's time for you to vote. Who is the Lightning's franchise player?

You can cast your ballot in three ways: in the comments section below, through our Facebook page or, hit us up on Twitter @ESPN_NHL using the hashtag #ESPNplayerNHL.
