Not bad for a 24 year old bust.
'grats to Stammer!
Not bad but was never a bust either
Who called him a bust? Melrose?
Kind of good yeah!
Congrats Stammer. Looking forward to the next 250
Melrose said something along the lines of Stamkos wasn't ready for the NHL as a rookie. Stamkos almost instantly started to produce once Melrose was fired. Melrose was horrible in Tampa.
Congrats to Stamkos.
Wow. That was fast.
So if he stays healthy he should hit 500 goals before he turns 30, that is dam impressive.
Crazy when you think he basically missed a whole season with lockout + broken leg. We should have had this thread last season - this season could've been for 300.
Damn that was fast, hard to believe he's already played over 400 games.
Harder to believe he still has close to a decade of "prime" years left. I feel like he's been 24 for the last four years, every time I go to check his age I expect 27-28.
Potential to go down as the greatest goal scorer of his generation.
Congrats Stammer time. He made prob 230 of those goals look gorgeous in the process.
It was a pretty nice goal, he just makes it look so easy, and good job by Callahan on getting the puck to him:
Great job by one of the best goal scorers in the league. Maybe even the best.
Definitely the best goalscorer in the league for me, closely followed by Ovie. Stammer is able to score more without relying on an instant shoot on sight philosophy - can't argue with his %s
best sniper in the game...Stammer.
Stamkos' career average S% is 17,5 and it's 1,7% higher than anybody else(heavy shooters over 3,0 s/g) since first lock out. It's safe to say that Stamkos has top-5 shot of all time
Meanwhile Zach Parise just got #250 about a week ago. He is 30 and has scored 30+ goals 5 times and 40+ 1 time. That just shows how incredible Stamkos is.
Zack also didn't make the NHL before 22
People were talking in his rookie season and saying Doughty was the much better pick.
I learn something new every day. Damn you Barry Melrose!
Here's a HF thread from 2008 that discusses Melrose saying Stamkos not ready for NHL.
And many people agreed.
