GTOG Told You So: Steven Stamkos

By Artistry

Back in July, GTOG felt Steven Stamkos wasn't getting the respect he deserved in various pre-season NHL player rankings.  Despite sharing the league lead in goals last year with Sidney Crosby, Stamkos wasn't even cracking some pundits' lists of top 10 centers.  We ranked him behind only Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.  Last night Stamkos recorded a natural hat trick to take over the league lead in goal-scoring with 8.  The guess here is he's not looking back.

When this kid gets a chance, he doesn't miss.  What a weapon.

  1. You put him in a washington capitals uniform and change his number to 8 and alot of people would think they were watching ovechkin with the way stamkos lets that shot go.......wait he isn't trying to cheap shot players and goon it up when he's not scoring, nevermind.
