On a side note, I was reading an article from the GDT about Tampa ruining Stamkos' young career. People on this board and other places often ask if a team or manager could truly "screw" with a players development...thats exactly how.

Even though players have talent, they need to be the complete package in order to be successful in the NHL, or any top tier league. That includes a strong mental makeup, strong conditioning, solid all-around strength, and a team that develops the player through coaching, game tape, etc...

The Lightning clearly have missed this on several fronts.
