Even Ovechkin? At his salary? With his lack of defensive effort? On the Blues? Gotta strongly disagree.

You do realize Stamkos plays on the Lightning, a team who employs a 1-3-1 system that is one of the most defensively conservative systems in the league. Stamkos is far from a "one dimensional,me-first player. I'm guessing Stamkos never bought into the defensive system which the Lightning played that got them to the ECF in 2011?
