What are the biggest concerns? Here are 10 burning questions…
What’s with the goalies?
Marc Denis and Johan Holmqvist were really bad at times last season, and statistically they were among the worst. Karri Ramo played 70 minutes, but it was Denis and Holmqvist who were most responsible for the team’s .884 save percentage, last in the league, and a 3.11 goals-against average that was 24th. Holmqvist, with 27 regular-season victories, showed promise, though he couldn’t carry the team in the playoffs. Denis is the bigger concern. If Tampa Bay could have dealt him over the summer it would have, but his $2.8-million salary wiped out any market value. Now it hopes he resurrects his career.
