The Tampa Bay Lightning consistently rise above most expectations, continually boasting one of the best offenses in the league. The Lightning are still being led by captain Steven Stamkos, and Stamkos has absolutely shredded the league since being drafted. He’s a lethal goal scorer with the toughness to back it up. Before Stamkos’ time, they won the Stanley Cup in 2003-04 and played in the Cup Final in 2014-15 with Stamkos in the team. There’s no reason to expect that this team won’t be a contender for years to come, especially with Steve Yzerman pullng the strings in the front office.
