Open thread for Saturday, October 1

With the weekend in full swing now and site staff busy with other responsibilities, you're invited to comments. Discuss the Tampa Bay Lightning preseason, discuss the state of other NHL teams in the preseason so far -- be they opponents like the Hurricanes, Panthers, or the contest tonight against Nashville. The World Cup of Hockey is now over and worth a word (or a shared link).

If you have questions about the team or perhaps even about the site -- ask.
