Blast from the past
Old-time Lightning fans, I think, seem to dismiss the impact that first-ever pick Roman Hamrlik had with the Bolts.
But this came up during the Lightning's game Saturday against the Flames, the team Hamrlik is with now. Think of how much of an offensive force Dan Boyle has been the past couple of seasons. Boyle had 53 points last season. He has 55 in 70 games this season. But Hamrlik still holds the team record for defensemen with 65 in 1995-96.
