Stamkos is a training freak
So was Bure. Nobody in Vancouver worked harder than him.
Bure's true greatness can be seen in his play when suiting up for Russia. He became a much better player, back checked and more of a team guy. He had the skill, speed, strength to play a more complete game, of course surrounded by talent. He had a lot of heart at times. Don't get me wrong, one of my Fav Russian players. He played so well for Russia on 1 knee and still was the fastest guy out there. His NHL and International careers are so different in terms of his overall game, which was product of the NHL and not him.
In SLC he wasn't anything special. In St. Petersburg he was a disaster (everybody was).
