Three keys to the offseason for the Tampa Bay Lightning

It was an incredible run for the young Tampa Bay Lightning and they have a window to win a Stanley Cup championship that is in the early stages of opening. This spring should just be the start.

GM Steve Yzerman was fairly aggressive last summer in adding experienced players like Anton Stralman, Jason Garrison and Brian Boyle to a good, young roster. He won’t be as aggressive this summer. More than anything, this group just needs time to build off the experience of this spring.

Oh yeah, and a new contract for its best player.
