He does have the sniper aspect of Hull being in the right spot at the right time and a great shot. I think Stamkos is much more physically gifted though.

I dont think so.

Stamkos is a much better skater and more complete player than Hull was. Hull wasn't a great skater and didnt do much in the way of the little things... But he was one of the best snipers of all time so it didnt really matter.

In a lot better shape than Hull. Better overall player too.

No. Stamkos didn't betray his country when he wasnt picked for the national team.

Stamkos is much quicker and much more potential as a two-way player.

I think Hull had the better shot and release though.

Definitely. 3rd all time most goals. Goalies feared his shot.

Stamkos may already be above Brett Hull in his defensive play. Finally, a true pure goal scorer in the NHL again.

He was so sneaky too.

Everyone on the ice knew that his shot, if allowed to let it go, meant a goal.

Yet, he was always able to find the weak-spot in the defense. He was always able to get open somehow.

Then, as soon as you knew it, the puck was in the net.

People always complain about players being "invisible" on the ice. A player like Hull showed the positivity in being "invisible". You can't defend what you can't see, and he was consistently able to sit in his "sniper's nest" undetected.

I figured he'd be dead by now since he's playing the toughest team to ever lace'm up

This. I hate when compared to other players, Stamkos gets crapped on for that. For some players, being invisible is their best weapon. Stamkos' ability to get lost, and pop up in a prime scoring opportunity, is one of his best assets. It shows that he's a smart player.

Hull wasn't as skilled and was defensively incompetent.

Ugh, not this again...

Taking advantage of a dual citizenship makes one a traitor? Most people don't have the opportunity to be eligible for TWO national teams, so after being denied from one, he threw in his lot with the other and voila!

Unless of course you were being sarcastic.

He wanted to play. Canada didn't pick him, so he went to his other option. Can't blame him for that can you?

Once he played for the States international rules say he can't play for another country.

Hull can't touch Stamkos in terms of speed and creativity. I don't agree with this comparison. The are both good at finding scoring positions though.

He is not nearly as lazy as Hull was. Also he plays different position.

They are both world-class snipers. Other than that i don't see how they are similar.

if srs: God forbid a player wanting to play on a national team, one of the highest levels of competition there is.
