Default Lightning vs. Panthers - 10/3/19 @ 7 PM

Another season begins...

I know a lot of folks are still sour, but this is still a team that will score a lot of goals and win a lot of games. Don't take it for granted, especially if you were there for the lean years.

Banners are already up so looks like they won't make a big show of it.

Please make this a sticky, so the stench of Game 4 of the Columbus series doesn't remain at the top of the page (or un-sticky that one)

Honestly, I wish they would have done a full ceremony just to make those guys sit through it.

Yeah it would've been interesting to make them squirm a bit. They might still do an announcement and a spotlight, who knows.

You celebrate playoff championships, not regular season trophies.

Nashville was criticized by most hockey fans for looking like southern rubes. And now we reinforce the stereotype.
Complete and total nonsense. '

It's not unusual to hang one for the President's Trophy. What Nashville got criticized for was hanging one for a fictitious Regular Season Western Conference title. See the banner at the right of the picture.

Ok, if they want to raise it for their regular season accomplishments, have at it. If they had won the cup (or a game), I might have felt better about it.
