Martin St Louis is currently in first for points with only a few games remaining. If we wins the Art Ross, will he be the oldest player too do so? Man this guy is so underrated.

He's too small to be effective in the tough eastern conference.

Yes, he would be the oldest I believe.

While I don't think St Louis is really all that underrated (he's widely regarded as a great player), the past 5 or so years has been so lackluster for Tampa as a team. Every year I look at their roster and see such a potent offensive, especially top 6 and their defense and goaltending just screws it all up.

No discredit to him in the slightest but Kunitz has 50 points on a line with Crosby all season.. A lot of credit due to Mr. Stamkos but still an incredible accomplishment for St. Louis.

Like many sports, in hockey size has always been considered important.  Good to see St. Louis prove that a smaller guy can be a very effective NHL player, especially in this era where players are bigger and stronger than they used to be.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Too bad St. Louis and Stamkos don't help their team win. They allow as many as they get.

Well, I think Stamkos owes a lot to St. Louis to be honest.  There's no doubt St. Louis wouldn't have the stats he has without Stamkos, but it goes the other way too.  Stamkos is a sniper, he needs a good set up guy.

 

For St. Louis's acceptance speech, he first needs to thank the puck that smashed Crosby's jaw into several pieces, without that, he might be about 20 points behind.

St Louis is one of the best playmakers in the game. No way is he a product of Stamkos, he was playing the same way before Stamkos was there.

But... power forwards. Siiize.

In all seriousness, I really hope he gets it. For his age, Tampa's place in the league... it'd just be pretty cool to see. And to those who cite Stamkos as the reason for his numbers, I think you could argue it the other way around as well. Stamkos is a great trigger man, but St. Louis is a fantastic playmaker.

If you've got a power forward who can skate like the wind and snipe like a mofo, you can be a small guy. Put Abdelkader and Cleary with St. Louis and tell me how it turns out.

Your right, on one hand. I'm not gonna try to find the quote but I think St. Louis actually said aomething about playing with Stamkos will probably extend his career several years and I would agree. I don't think St. Louis puts up these numbers at this stage in his career withoutStamkos.

Bang on.  He won the Art Ross in 2004 as well in the clutch and grab era.  Stamkos didn't come along until 6 years later.

St. Louis is one of the best play makers in the game. Stamkos needs him as much as any play maker needs a sniper. Can you imagine what Pavel's numbers would look like with Stamkos on his wing? Deadly.

Although Stamkos is a fantastic young player, it seems like he never scores goals without the help of St. Louis.  I would safely wager that more than 50% of his goals has an assist from St. Louis.  At any rate, it's pretty cool to see a guy that old win the Art Ross trophy - even if it was obviously due to an injury to someone else.

Other than being the oldest, he'd also set another record, longest time between Art Ross trophies (9 years).

I've always liked St. Louis. Found a good home in Tampa and excelled.

 

Also not a Euro.

 

Tough little French Nuck to play against and his point numbers prove it.
