Quite possibly pegged as a second-line player for the Lightning this season, Ryan Craig has now been sidelined with a herniated disc in his back and is now on the shelf indefinitely. The Lightning, already hit by injuries, have now another hole to fill. This should blow the door wide open for Jan Hlavac to make an impact with the Lightning. Hlavac was a front-runner to have a decent job in Tampa this season, but Craig falling to injury should rank him much higher.
