OK, congrats, again, to the TB Lightning.
Is there a story about how they got so great and sustained it? I mean, the LV Knights’ story is pretty good, taking advantage of the expansion draft and all, then finding out that the pieces actually worked well together.

They named Everett Fitzhugh as the radio play-by-play voice.
Expansion draft, LV Knights exempt for some reason, even though they’re near the top of the league, is on July 21. Guessing some old rule predicated on the assumption that expansion teams would suck for five years. Regular draft on July 23-24.
Still working on realignment as COVID is holding up plans. Without COVID, Arizona (haooooooooooo) would move to Central, while SEA Kraken would play in Pacific. With COVID, they might stick with the Great White North Division.
