We're talking about two entirely different players, here. Just based on size and skill, Vincent dwarfs Steven now and in their first seasons. Tampa Bay has also become a shell of its former self, clearly employing the wrong individuals who cannot lead or develop this team. I'm not saying Stamkos will be awful, but he is not an NHL player at this point and needs further seasoning.
