    I'm almost 100% certain that the issues with Stamkos is that he feels the need to be an "all around player". I mean thats not a bad thing but its not what makes him a threat. He needs to be completely focused on shooting and scoring goals and playing selfish. I know that sounds wrong but what makes him dangerous is when he is shooting. Maybe its because he's the captain and feels like he needs to be that all around type of guy or maybe its a coaching thing (probably a mix of both) but I really just want to seem him play selfishly when he's out there. We saw glimpses of it in round 3 vs the caps and this is why i'm almost convinced that its a mental thing or coaching thing with him. We've seen that he can still be the "old stammer" when he wants to, now its just a matter of getting him into that mentality 24/7.

    Stamkos should just copy Ovechkin's playoffs this year. That's the formula.

    Did Namestnikov played center at some point in Tampa? I feel like this guy still havent reach his full potential, he's so smart on the ice.
    I wonder what's coming for him this summer.

    He was much more successful on wing but he was drafted as a C and played every year primarily as a C until this year.
