OT: Steven Stamkos Emergence as Top Scorer

Boy is this guy lighting it up. 13 goals in 14 games!!! He is going to get a ridiculous contract especially because the Lightning have a ton of cap space.

He was my personal pick at the start of the season to win the Richard.

Just think, If we could have waited just one extra year.....

A guy in my fantasy hockey league took Stamkos first overall over Ovechkin and all of us laughed at him. Not anymore...

I really hope JVR becomes the dominant power forward he's projected to be. It's not often the Flyers get a high draft pick, and it'd be nice to see something very good come out of the season which shall not be named.

They really did choose the wrong year to be crappy though, when you look at the impact 2nd overall picks have made in the years before and after that draft.

He's a distant relative of mine, apparently.

So is Steve Staios.

At that pace, he'll reach 50 goals in 54 games. Not close to Gretzky's 39 but still, damn impressive.

I like JVR and believe that he will reach his potential but, mother****er, I'd love to have Kane or Stamkos. JVR will always suck compared to them.

True, but they were possible additions even if the Flyers hadn't sucked that year. The 2nd overall pick wasn't, barring a trade.

You do know that all people named Steve aren't related. Right, Steve?

Stamkos is beasting. Also on espn they do a little argument for JVR as to why he is slow to develop. It is a good read.

People always look at Kane and wish we could have had him, but he is getting paid 6.3 Million and was paid 3.725 Mill on his ELC. We would have had to sacrifice a lot. You cant just add him to the roster in place of JVR, it would have to be something like JVR and Carter gone.

JVR has 1 more year on his ELC and at half the price.

Not saying I wouldn't prefer Kane even with the cap considerations, but their would have hard rosters decisions to make.

Last season in my fantasy league i took him in the 13TH ROUND and laughed all the way to the bank.

This year he dropped to me in both leagues to the 3rd and 5th spots respectively. The league where i got him 5th, Kovalchuk was selected before him. epic fail?

But honestly, the kid is magnificent. I kinda hope guys like JvR, Tavares, Duchene, Hall, and Seguin have similar growth spurts (at some point), the league can never have too many superstars. Compared to the other 4 leagues, I think except for maybe baseball, that hockey has the greatest talent out there. Unfortunately, many people don't know it.

And to think, people say there are too many teams in the league and the talent level is watered down. I mean, sure the talent is thinner than it would be with 22 teams, but compared to other leagues the talent is deep. Hockey and baseball are the only big time leagues in this country that draw large portions of talent from all over the world. Basketball is starting to, but it's not on the same level yet.

Well, to be fair:

No one but the US and maybe Canada play American rules football.

The style of the NBA is not the traditional style of basketball played around the world, meaning that many European players would be square pegs in round holes. The talent level in those countries is not even comparable to America, either.

Baseball is the American past time and few countries play it other than Latin countries (which the MLB recruits HEAVILY from) and Japan (which the MLB is just starting to notice).

Hockey is probably the 2nd biggest sport worldwide behind soccer and is played in almost every civilized (IE. non 3rd world country) nation in the world, including in the olympics. And, btw, our country is one of the worst developers in talent among the countries which develop players from this sport.

So, it really is no wonder why the NHL has the largest percentage of non-American players in it compared to the other sports.
