73 said it was time.

I have a lot going on and haven't been paying attention to off season moves at all. I have no idea what is going on around the league.

Having said that, good luck everyone.

Here's hoping Tom Wilson suffers painful, debilitating and career-ending hemorrhoids.

Yeah we have been getting a lot of summer time thunder storms laced with what our region is famous for, Lightning. As most of you may know Tampa is known as the Lightning capital of the world, however it really is only #1 of North America. The #1 spot is shared by 2 places according to a compilation of weather statistics that NASA actually made a map of. The Democratic Republic of Congo and Lake Maracaibo of Venezuela are the two most lightning stuck places of the world. I know I have mentioned this in past threads but the word Tampa was taken from the native Calusa Indians (an off shoot of the Seminole) which most historians agree meant "Sticks of FIRE". So in Calusa Indian language Tampa meant Lightning.
The pic here is one of the 2 Tesla coils that are in the Amalie Arena and when Both are lit up creates quite the spectacle. Especially when they're fired up after every goal! I can't wait to see them again!

Lets GO Lightning

Thanks for the info about the Bolts name and where it came from, I didn't know that.

Yzerman is being very vague, not sure what he is doing.  One year left on his contract and then....we'll see?  Leaves everyone wondering what's happening.

You would actually be surprised how many "native" Tampainians do not know the origins of the name of the city of their birth.
As far as Yzerman it is still a bit of a shock bit it seems his replacement Julien Brise Bois has been Yzermans long time assistant and has been a significant part of building the current lightning team. There are plenty of rumors still swirlling about this whole thing and the statement made by Steve that family was the deciding factor. But most speculators are saying this is an engine to reconnect with the Redwings. I personally hope (pray) that is not a matter of a medical diagnosis that has made Mr. Steve reevaluate what is truely important in this finite place we call Earth. My prayers are for him and his family!!! :angel:

:o wOw am I glad last nights game was only a preseason game with the Bolts falling to Carolina 4-1. My Lightning appeared to be skating with stickum on their skates but did make up for it by being completely out of sync! I was so looking forward to seeing a competitive effort as coach made his 1st line filled with "star power" By the 2nd period it seems the A players still need a lot of ice time to get in the swing of things :lol: . Like I mentioned before I'm glad it was only a preseason game. looking to see improvement Tampa host Nashville.
GO Bolts!!

Well, here is a story from our local paper, we are having a preseason game here in SLC between the LA Kings and the Vancouver Canucks on the 24th.  Trevor Lewis is from Salt Lake City and Daniel Brickley is a childhood friend who is now also playing for the Kings.  It is a great story about how they met playing rec hockey and their dads became buddies too.  One of the fathers has terminal cancer so he is going to get to see the two of them play together Monday night.

Not a Kings fan but this is a story about how hockey brings people together.. Nice :heart: :rose: :angel: :)
