The Tampa Bay Lightning have high hopes for newly acquired goaltender Anders Lindback.
Tampa Bay got Lindback from Nashville on Friday. "We think he has the ability to become a No. 1 goalie soon, but it would be wrong to sit here today and say he's our No. 1 goalie," Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said. "We think he has really good potential, and we're going to let him develop at the right pace." It remains to be seen if Lindback will be the Lightning's opening game goaltender, but he should get plenty of playing time in 2012-13. He's a nice goalie to gamble on late in standard fantasy drafts and his keeper league value has increased dramatically now that he's in Tampa Bay.
