    You're missing positivity and happiness in your life.

    I'm sure you will argue the above just to argue.

    I think that sometimes Steven stamkos is good, but also sometimes Steven stamkos is bad.

    So, in conclusion, Steven stamkos is a land of contrasts.

    They've experimented with him on the wing before, and while he publicly says he doesn't mind where he plays, he looked completely uncomfortable in the role. If they had another Point-esque player in the lineup, I'd force him to the wing anyways, but as it stands right now if he moves to wing that will mean moving Miller to center or breaking up effective line combinations.

    Right now this is probably the best course of action.

    Stamkos is fine as center as long as he keeps his game simple, do the safest play to keep the cycle going and just focus to find open space. It seems he's trying too hard sometimes.

    I agree. In no way am I suggesting that we change things up this offseason, or even next season. The ship has sailed.

    Your response pretty much proves my point.

    Stammer, bro, you’re a good poster. I joke with sky, he’s good too. Please, I beg of you, don’t take him seriously. Christ. He’s trolling. Us. Always. I like sky, but he’s looking for someone to be argumentative, and honestly? You’re not a good match. You’re too invested. Understand that I am complimenting you both. You wanna **** with sky? Post like you don’t care. It’s super easy. Look at me. I haven’t cared about a post since 2002.

    Why troll each other? There are a ton of worthwhile Bruins "fans" to direct it at.

    This was probably his best game of the playoffs so far. Skated hard every shift and made a difference. If he would do this more often, he wouldn't catch nearly as much criticism.

    I agree. This was all that was expected of him. He didn't need to take over a game, he just needed to stop psyching himself out and just play the game. Whether or not he's injured, I'm convinced the mental side had been hampering him a lot more. Like our odds with Stammer back in the mix.

    He moved like classic Stammer. One of the few that actually came to play tonight.

    I thought he was "clearly injured"? Modern medicine really is something, a guy can go from looking like he's playing on one leg to playing some of his best hockey in the span of a week.

    Brett Connolly has more ES goals and points than him. PP specialist.

    Has more points than Lee and Sustr combined too. True MVP.

    Seeing as how those guys are shutdown defenders who haven't been on the ice for any goals against this postseason, they're all MVP'S.

    When he went down in the 2nd(?) I was like: How come every time Stamkos plays his best hockey, he immediately takes a freak injury?

    Thankfully he came back. Still looks incredible.
