Hope is a Waking Dream

As the season winds to a close the sense of dissillusionment and meloncoly percolates among Lightning fans. Just a month ago the playoffs were a distinct possibility and excitment was building in the cool Tampa air.

Fast forward to the present day where the losses are piling up on a nightly basis and the faintest of hopes are fading into the night. I'll save a few review of the season for a future columnm, for now I'll just post some reminders of why there is a reason to have hope.



1.Steven Stamkos from the left circle.




2. Victor Hedman skating effortlessly through the neutral zone with puck




3. Vincent Lecavalier injury free and contract-worry free




4. An owner with cash, not like these two.



5. It’s not 1998-99. I give you these notable names from the roster a decade ago:
Colin Forbes, Sergey Gusev, David Wilkie, Mike McBain, Steve Kelly, Drew Bannister, Karel Betik, Corey Spring, Xavier Delisle, Mario Larocque, Jason Bonsignore and Zac Bierk.

Bonus





Dustin Tokarski in the net.

I'm going to see the B's/Lightning game tomorrow night, let's hope they can keep their losing streak up. The Bruins need the points!

the bolts won last night. Only 8 points out with 9 games to go. Keep hope alive!

Have fun at the game. I'll be watching from the couch.

Really hope Vinny can bounce back to the form he had 2 years ago ... he gets close to that and the Bolts could be really dangerous.
