from Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Times,
This is the second time Yzerman has snubbed St. Louis from an Olympic spot. In 2010, St. Louis was boiling mad at Yzerman and Yzerman had yet to join the Lightning. Imagine how St. Louis feels today.
Be warned, Lightning fans: this could get ugly.
It's going to be a problem for Yzerman. It's going to be a problem for the Lightning.
St. Louis is angry and he has every right to be.
He was just told by Yzerman that his services aren't needed to win a gold medal, and now Yzerman is going to ask him to go out and lead the Lightning to a Stanley Cup.
Yeah, good luck with that.
St. Louis is a proud man. He desperately wanted to play for Canada in next month's Olympics. Now you have to wonder just how badly he wants to play for the Lightning.
FYI, St. Louis did not talk about Team Canada post-game except to say he is "extremely disappointed".
