Hell, I remember people calling Stamkos a bust when he didn't put up 100 points in his first 45 games in the NHL.
I agree - and with power forwards it takes even longer. We need to see what he can do with a full year without injuries, assuming that is possible. If we could get a decent defenseman for him, I'd be OK with it. Otherwise, they need to be patient, which really isn't a strong point of this organization or city.
