Despite the uncertainty - a season preview

Spector's Season Preview comes out even though things are entirely uncertain at this point for the NHL. With the Players Association bargaining in bad-faith/no faith and Gary Bettman shunning an independant mediator, the next 17 days are not likely to save the NHL seaosn.

That being said, thinking about what would be is still better than thinking about what won't be...

To give you just a taste of the Lightning's preview - I bring up the last quote of the paragraph on the Bolts:
The scary part about this Lightning team is many of their key players are only just coming into their prime, meaning the Bolts will be contenders for a long time.
