This was anticipated back in the summer, but we are inching ever closer to its reveal with a teaser and what seems to be like a leak of the real Reverse Retro jersey the Tampa Bay Lightning will be sporting this season from earlier in the week. And you guessed it, it’ll be the Storm jerseys that were infamous (now famous again) during the early years of the franchise.
Vlad Namestnikov, aka Russian Bieber, is back for another go-round with the Lightning. He’s not the same player as he was when he left, but that’s not a bad thing.

Nikita Kucherov was the top Bolt on this ranking at #5, with Victor Hedman at #8, Steven Stamkos at #20 (a shock to me), and Brayden Point at #26. Do you think these ranks were too high or too low?

And finally, Danny DeKeyser got a PTO with the Toronto Marlies after failing to earn a contract in the NHL. The Leafs have a lot of injuries, so he could find path back to the league from there.
