Keep Steven Stamkos At Center

from Marin Fennelly of the Tampa Tribune,

Lightning coach Jon Cooper fiddles while Steven Stamkos burns.

Wouldn’t it be easier if Cooper just drove Stamkos to the airport right now?

I Iforget. Is Air Canada on the blue- or red-side drop-off?...

So naturally Cooper had to tweak.

If it ain’t broke, fix it....

But why mess with No. 91 right now, when Stamkos is playing well? Why does Stamkos move to the wing? Why not Filppula? Why is Stamkos always the one who has to budge?

You’d be wrong if you think people around hockey don’t notice this.

Stamkos and Cooper say the right things in public. No matter.

There’s a problem here.

It’s time to check those egos. Especially you, Coop.
