Tampa mowed through the competition this past regular season en route to 62 wins and 128 points, only to be swept in the first round of the playoffs by the Columbus Blue Jackets. After opening as the favorite following the regular season, the Lightning will once again be the hunted when the 2019-20 campaign kicks off.

In January, the Blues owned the worst record in the NHL and sat 250-1 in the futures market.

That's how you buy low.
