Lightning First For Stamkos, Then Team Canada

from Martin Fennelly of the Tampa Tribune,

If he can’t go for the Lightning in a game before heading to Russia, he shouldn’t go.

I’d rather break his heart than have him break something else, even in the name of Canada....

It’s just three weeks until hockey begins in Sochi.

The Lightning appear playoff bound.

Lightning GM Steve Yzerman can’t listen to Stamkos’ heart.

It’s complicated, since Yzerman is also GM for Team Canada. By the way, Y needs to drop one of those gigs after these Games. We’ve seen from the Marty St. Louis Olympic snub that Yzerman is in an awkward position. Now it’s stranger still with Stamkos’ situation.

I think Yzerman, with the doctors, will make the right call.

Stamkos’ heart can’t be the tiebreaker.
