Getting to know Steven Stamkos

From Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune:

"As far as Stamkos goes, he certainly seems like one of the nicest high-profile teenagers you might ever meet. Spent just over two hours at the family house outside of Toronto and had some great conversations. Very humble family and you can see how that has carried over to Steven. Despite all the heavy marketing the Lightning have already done with Stamkos, they still answer everything with 'if Tampa Bay drafts'."

Here is the full entry from Bolts Report.

By all accounts, the Lightning are not only getting an extraordinarily talented hockey player, but also a very polite and grounded young man. The organization has to be doing cartwheels over landing the number one overall selection.

Ballhype: hype it up!
