Even though ownership says the Bolts won't hire a new general manager until a CEO is in place, that is not stopping the media from speculating on who will become the next general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
And the truth is that the Bolts need to get things in order by late June in time to prepare for the draft and NHL free agency. To go into either event with a makeshift front office could spell disaster for the Lightning off-season.
Names like Dave Nonis, Steve Yzerman, and even former Lightning GM Jay Feaster have their names in the mix. More names will come to light in the coming days and weeks - especially after a CEO is penciled in.
