Money is one thing... but Richard trophies... pretty hard to come by.
Play on Brother Stamkos. Even a 50% healthy Stamkos helps the team more than most of the guys on their best days. I'm sure you didn't mean to imply that sitting Stamkos is addition by subtraction. I'll give you a pass on that one. Personally, I like it when the big stars play through it instead of sitting it out. That's leadership stuff.
BTW... I didn't mean to imply that's the *only* reason Stamkos might still be playing through injury. I'm sure he's trying to earn a playoff berth for the team and all that. But, there's no denying there's bonus money still out for him to play for too! Otherwise, why put it your contract?
