While Stamkos is best player, he's not necessarily the face. Vinny won them a cup, a Rocket (like Stamkos), and has been there for 14 years. I'm sure Tampa fans see him just as we saw Mats. (and Stamkos as the heir to the throne)
I remember John Torttorella really schooling Vinny behind the bench during those stanley cup playoffs back in the day and all that... he yelled at him like an angry turtle. Tortorella played a huge role in making Lecavalier a better player, and a better Captain of course. He teached him so many things.
Vincent Lecavalier went through an amazing journey of growth with his sensei: John Tortorella
