[QUOTE=Tampa Bay Trio;63571007]I'm frequently surprised at how poorly we perform too, but I keep coming back to one player - Stamkos. He isn't dominating games and looks scared to take a hit to make a play.

THIS. I always felt he'd be more comfortable as a winger than a pivot, plus it would save us from having to see the same "skate up the boards with the puck, stop at the top of the circle, spin, attempt a centering pass, begin an odd man rush for the other team" move that he does every time.

He's unconscious when he shoots, he overthinks things when he has to distribute the puck.

/nice to see him sticking up for Marty in that last Caps game though.
