Is Steve Stamkos the new face of the NHL?
No, but he’s in the same group picture that features Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin.
Stamkos is the third-best forward in the game today, behind Crosby and Ovechkin, with apologies to reigning MVP Henrik Sedin, as well as Pavel Datsyuk and Evgeni Malkin.
“Stamkos No. 3? Yeah, I’d say he’s making a case for it,” said Phoenix Coyotes forward Ray Whitney. “He’s that good. He’s got that shot. You can watch him all you want, but he doesn’t need any time. And he’s playing with a pretty good little guy (Martin St. Louis).”
