Man. If I were Steve Stamkos, I don't know if I'd want to come play in Boston anymore. First of all, there was the time he got rocked by a Johnny Boychuk slapshot in the face:

Granted, it was Game 7 so he came back, but still - that had to suck. Then, if that (and the subsequent loss to the 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins) wasn't enough, Dougie "The Thug" Hamilton smashed him up pretty good against the goal a little bit later. Stamkos missed a good chunk of that season, and especially the Olympics. Tough break, literally. (Warning, this sucked)

No wonder the schedulers wanted to push back the first meeting between Flortheast rivals back to mid-January. I like Stamkos, the kid is fun to watch, but I worry - what's next for him in Boston?

Good Morning, everyone. What's on tap?
