The tampabay lightning have made a bunch of moves to get rid of old veterans like Martin St.louis, Alex Kovalev, Evgeni Nabokov and Andrei Markov in order to get much younger as g.m. Paul Lamarch felt the team had no chance to win the cup with these vets. After all these trades I will in 3 installments take a  look at the depth of the Tampabay Lightning along with their projections in the nhl this season to see how this team will look next season. The first installement will include the centre core, the second installement will include the wingers and finally finishing with the d-men and goalies.
I will first start off with the centre core which includes Patrick Marleau, Jarret Stoll, Jussi Jokinen, Doug Weight and Kyle Wellwood

Patrick Marleau: 22GP 11G 14A 25PTS Projected for 82GP 41G 52A

Jarret Stoll:  21GP 6G 4A 10PTS Projected for 82GP 23G 15A 38PTS

Jussi Jokinen: 21GP 6G 3A 9PTS Projected: 82GP 23G 11A 44PTS 

Kyle Wellwood: 17GP 8G 2A 10PTS Projected: 77GP 36G 9A 45PTS

Doug Weight: 22GP 5G 17A 22PTS Projected: 82GP 18G 63A 82PTS

Marleau was picked up to be my franchise forward of the future and is having the type of season to be just that.

Jarret Stoll was picked up to be the 2nd line centre where he's expected to produce 25 and 25 but isn't living up to that just yet but it's still early

Jussi Jokinen was picked up hoping he would improve both his offensive and defensive game which he's doing somewhat so far this year and at his cheap contract and young age, there are no complaints from management.

Kyle Wellwood was a waiver pick up, we took a chance on him and so far he's paying off, if he could get 45 points with 20 goals the lightning will be extremely thrilled

Doug Weight was a salary dump from another team and on the farm is only costing the lightning 550K. Weight is unrestricted for next season, but with no one on the team to protect, it looks like weight will be the man!
