Lightning owner Jeff Vinik sent an apology letter to season ticket holders. 

“We accept full responsibility for our result in the postseason”.”Nobody is more disappointed than our players and the hockey operations department.” Vinik goes on to say he has complete confidence in the team he has and that he is confident they will win the cup.

I’d like to tell Jeff Vinik, Coach Cooper and the entire team that they don’t need to apologize. The lightning are a great team and the most exciting team in Tampa Bay. I’m confident Lightning fans will never give up on this team!
