07:40 AM ET 12.04 | Three weeks after breaking his leg against the Boston Bruins, Steven Stamkos' near future is looking brighter -- and it may include Sochi. He's ahead of schedule. He's targeting February 6 against the Tornoto Maple Leafs as his expected date of return. He's working out on a daily basis, riding a bike, and core training. He's going to work out exclusively with Gary Roberts over the Christmas break and then he'll kick it in to high gear and do two-a-day training in January. ... And Team Canada is going to use that extra week they got from the IIHF and will announce their roster on January 7. Meanwhile, the Team Canada brain trust is going to meet before the Board of Governors meeting in California, take in a Kings game and fine tune their player list this weekend.

Since this may be his last opportunity at an Olympics for a long time, I hope he's healthy enough.

One of the first people to talk to Stephane Robidas after his broken leg - Stamkos.


The kid just found a new fan.

It's kind of nice to hear about a professional athlete that seems to have a decent moral and ethical compass. Stamkos seems to be simply a good person.

I don't see it. It makes no sense to rush it.

Mercifully, we still have a few of those left in the NHL. Let's hope it stays that way.

TSN must have watched last night's game.

That would be very strong motivation for someone in a scoring slump. I don't think Stamkos is in that category.

Stamkos is a class act.

Who is Gary Roberts? Is he the Canadian version of the medicine man?

I mentioned it on another thread. They did kind of 'hold on' the last period, but a win's a win.

Fitness trainer who had a short NHL career. Only 21 years I think. :o)

LOL - A list that's shorter than ethical lawyers or good politicians.

Compared to the NBA, NFL and MLB the NHL has lots of class acts.

I remember that someone said on plane trips NHL players had more courtesy, and were gentlemen compared to all other Pros.

He played for the Pens one year. They called him Scary Gary because he looked really mean and he played hard nosed hockey. Played well, but it was at the end of his career.
