Bad for the Bolts and Bad for Team Canada

 

"...Stamkos was hurt with 7:11 to play in the second period. He entered the day tied with Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby as the NHL's leading scorer. Stamkos got tied up with Boston defenceman Dougie Hamilton and crashed into the right post.

His left skate appeared to hit the post first before his right leg crashed into it around the shin area. He tried to get up twice before going down to the ice in pain, grabbing his leg just above the ankle.

The injury is bad news for the Lightning and Canada's Olympic team, Stamkos was considered a lock to represent Canada at the 2014 Sochi Games..."

Ouch.  Literally.

 

I was going to ask why there was a game this afternoon, but evidently the NHL likes scheduling day games that only 10% of the country has off.

Vid is up at nhl.com. He looked MISERABLE on the ice. Hope his season isn't over...

Hurts TB. Canada not so much imo. Canada has so much depth up front they could ice 2 teams.

Probably would have been a lot worse if his other skate hadn't hit first, too.  Unless, that is, he's got multiple fractures vs. a clean break.

Horrible news.  I hope he makes a full recovery, and doesn't suffer any persistent issues throughout his career.  That was quite a crash, though...

Going to hurt Team Canada in Sochi. 

 

First setback for Lightning ... see how deep their team is and if they can keep up their torrid pace.

Wishing him a speedy recovery,

 

On a side note, my fantasy season is over now. :(

That's pretty cringe-worthy, seems like you can see his shin bend on impact...

This is terrible news... Sad to see any player get hurt but even worse to see a star like Stamkos (man did he rip that wrist shot past Howie last game)

 

Get well Stevie!

Never like to see anyone hurt (unless its Claude Lemieux). It does hurt Canada a little bit. Losing probably the top sniper in the world right now will hurt  no matter how deep your team is but theyll have the depth to replace him.  Hopefully he heals quick. Stamkos is one of my favorite guys to watch not on the Wings.

Why couldn't it just be Sammy?? I like Stamkos, and it's always nice to see someone other than he who shall not be named get a spot now and again on nhl's front page

I know Canada has plenty of depth, but I was looking forward to watching Stamkos in the Olympics.  

 

Tampa, as others have said, is in really big trouble now.  


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

So sad seeig Stamkos go down... The guy was having a great year and he is my favorite non red wing... It also hurts my fantasy team but that is beside the point. Hoping for a fast recovery and complication and set back free... Easily my favorite player to wear 91 since Feds

This also ruins any chances of a potential Cleary trade.

Cleary and a 2nd for Stamkos and Filppula <3

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

It looked bad when it happened.  He even said on the ice that it was broken, so I'm not surprised that it was.  The poor kid was in serious pain. 

Hopefully it was a clean break and it's something that will heal and he'll be able to get back to his career.  It's nice to have someone of his caliber that isn't arrogant or self-centered in the NHL. 

 

BTW- since there's not a thread for it- just want to add kudos to the Boston players who bought all those tickets for military personnel so that they could attend the game in honour of Veterans Day.  Classy move.

God so tough to watch, kid is an absolute humble superstar he reminds me a lot of Stevo Y. Stamkos in my mind is b far the most dangerous goalscorer in the game, lightning fast and his shot is like a laser all the best and a speedy recovery

On the event that Stamkos is unavailable for the Olympics, who do you think gets the call to replace him?
