“On the bench after that goal, we were kind a looking at each other just thinking, ‘Did he really do that?’ It’s a shame when he was in Detroit with Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Lidstrom for all those years, because not a lot of people talked about him. But he is getting a chance to show what you can do and it’s impressive.’’

-Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Valtteri Filppula.  More on "Flip" from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune.

Below, watch the goal Stamkos is talking about...

I wish I could say I was surprised, but I’m not. He always had so much upside.

Good to see he is coming in to his own now that he’s not a Red Wing anymore (sigh)

After watching the video, I read Stamkos’ statement as a comment on Markstrom’s glove hand

He scores a terrible backhand goal on Florida’s 2nd stringer, and Stamkos goes ga-ga over it?

Just wait.  We know Fil is talented.

We also know that once the shiny newness wears off, a lot of his jam and motivation disappears for some reason.
