Steven Stamkos is the NHL’s most dangerous goal scorer. The center is Tampa Bay’s franchise player. Stamkos, bypassed by Team Canada for the 2010 Olympics, will be the team’s go-to shooter in Sochi next February. Stamkos is a friendly, engaging, and approachable young man. The 23-year-old represents his employer and his sport as well as any player in the league.
Stamkos, however, will have to wait to assume Tampa’s captaincy.
