That knee-drop one timer is generally done on the power play. At even strength, though, Stamkos's main weapon (imo even greater than his shot) is finding soft spots in coverage and capitalizing when the chance presents itself.

I'm not saying Stamkos doesn't create his own chances 5v5-- quite the opposite, actually. I'm saying that just because you don't notice a guy in the offensive zone doesn't mean he's not doing something integral to the creation of offensive chances.
