Tampa Bay the New Philly?

So the Tampa Bay Lightning inked a 7-year deal with Penguin's forward Ryan Malone and a 1-year deal with Pen's veteran Gary Roberts. The Bolts now have their sights set on Minnesota Wild winger Brian Rolston. It will be interesting to see how their final roster shakes out for next season and the team is trying to strengthen said roster using the same strategies that the Flyers used in last year's free agency period. As we all know, the Flyers went from being one of the last place teams in the NHL to a second round contender in this year's Stanley Cup race. The Southeast Division may much more fun to watch next season - not withstanding the Caps who are always thrilling to watch - was referring to the rest of the division (deemed by some hockey snobs as the South"least" division)!
