I don't. I don't want him to go over there. And I don't want Marty or Ben or Victor to go, either. It's a goddamn snakepit, where soulless militant communist control freaks are supposed to protect them from soulless militant islamic control freaks. Even if no terrorist attacks occur, which is far from assured but is everyone's sincere hope, it's a HUGE win to have a couple weeks off to heal and rejuvenate before the playoff push. Even if you go and you win a medal, which is awesome, but at what cost in terms of being mentally and physically drained and exposed to untold needless risks to life and limb?
I get wanting to, I just don't want them to
Anyway, I'm not sure how much we should read into Stamkos taking a day off the ice to do some more rehab. Seems normal to me. We want them to take it slow and steady....
