Tocchet To Return to Lightning Bench for the Next Few Years

From the staff at TSN.ca:

The Tampa Bay Lightning are holding a press conference this afternoon where they will announce a new multi-year deal for head coach Rick Tocchet.

Tocchet and Lightning general manager Brian Lawton have been working on a new contract since the beginning of May, with the holdup being nothing more than finishing the details.

The Scarborough, Ontario native was given the ‘interim’ tag in November when the club fired Barry Melrose following a 5-7-4 record. Under Tocchet, the Bolts were 19-33-14 and finished the season 24-40-18 for 66 points; enough to finish second-last in the league.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing for the Lightning? Why?
