A brief guide to the players that have come and gone since the last time the Tampa Bay Lightning took to the ice. Part two of Raw Charge's 2013 Lightning season preview.

Here's hoping you didn't end up here after a search for one of those stupid, arbitrary list of trends that magazines like "Us" and "In Touch" put out at the start of every new year. If it were, the list would consist of exactly two items:

IN: Playing hockey OUT: Not playing hockey

No, instead what you have here is a brief guide to the Tampa Bay Lightning players that have departed and arrived since the last time the team appeared on the ice, way back in April of 2012.
