Stamkos will skip the WC:
Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos had a "clean" MRI on his injured left shoulder, the team said, but still will skip this year's world championships. (...)

Despite the injury with which Stamkos played for almost a month, he became part of NHL history when he became just the 20th player to reach 60 goals in a season and only the second to do it in the past 15 seasons. His 97 points also are a career high.

Stamkos said he takes "a lot of pride" in the fact he has not missed a game due to injury. "That's why you work hard in the summer and take care of your body the best you can during the season," he said. "It's playing through stuff, sometimes, as well." (...)

Now imagine "what if". Long summer to recover. 70 next year.
