"Last Word on Sports" Q and A regarding the Tampa Bay Lightning

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

In preparation for the playoffs, John and another Lightning logger were interviewed with questions about the Tampa Bay Lightning going in to the 2014 NHL playoffs.

A reading opportunity is out there for Lightning and Canadiens fans regarding the Bolts and the 2014 NHL Playoffs.  Last Word on Sports Internet Hootstove conducted a discussion with W.B. "Bill" Philp of Lightning Shout and yours truly about the Lightning, with the playoffs being the focus.

You can read the full Q and, and the answers Philp and I had here.

For discussion sake and for the sake of interaction though, I'm listing the five questions that we were posed, and I'd like to read your responses.

1. Who is the Lightning's biggest playoff x-factor?

2. Can the Lightning win without Ben Bishop?

3. There isn't very much playoff experience within this roster. How do you think this will factor in?

4. Did the Ryan Callahan for Martin St. Louis trade help or hurt your cup chances this year?

5. How far do you expect the Lightning to go?

What do you think?  Let us know.
