The only team I know that can build a three goal lead with 5:05 left in the game and it's still not completely safe. Have mercy.

That was probably the season. The Lightning lose a 4 point game in the division when they were already hanging on by a fingernail. The question now is not whether the Lightning will be sellers. The question is how much will be sold. There's little doubt in my mind guys like Prospal, Gratton, and probably one out of Kuba and Lukowich will be moving. The big question now is Dan Boyle.
Break up the Admirals!
