We’re coming to the end of our 30-in-30 trip here at FanSided, but before we get to our beloved Leafs, we have today’s post from Bolts by the Bay. The Lightning are another team I have a tough time cheering against, and alot of that has to do with all the good ol’ Canadian boys they got on the club. Stamkos is one of my favorite players in the league, and the Bolts will have their work cut out for them in a Southeast Division that keeps getting better and better. More on another Canadian beauty, Marty St. Louis:
There is no doubt that Marty St. Louis is my favorite player. He has been since day 1 when I chose to be a Lightning fan at the age of 16. He was on the team that helped lead us to the playoffs, and eventually win the cup. That’s always been a highlight in my eyes. After researching, and learning more about Marty, I’ve come to know who he is. He’s an inspiration, because he kept on pushing for his dreams and overcoming the struggles when everybody told him that he’d never make it in the NHL due to his height. Now, it’s very obvious that he’s proved them wrong. What is even better, is that he’s also proved that even the undrafted players can make it in the NHL and do well. His stats speak for themselves, even in the dark years, he tried to shine through. It will definitely be a shock when he retires, but until then let’s hope for Marty’s NHL career to continue being great.
