It's as simple thing, really.

The leaders have to lead. The impact players have to make an impact. The best players have to be the best players.

For the Tampa Bay Lightning, it is that simple. If they are going to win the Stanley Cup, they will have to look to the stars. Would you expect it to be any other way? There is a reason that the lead singers sing lead. There is a reason that the leading actors lead.

That’s OK if stammer is trying to be a complete player. We NEED Stammer to put some pucks in the net. We need some of that 60 goal lightning he once had. Yes it is good he is doing more, but it is affecting the most important part of his game, scoring.
