Jon Cooper Believes Stamkos Will Return This Year
From the Tampa Bay Times:
"In my heart, I know he's coming back. I have no doubt."
"I don't think the question is going to be, 'Is he coming back to play this year for the Tampa Bay Lightning?' The question is, 'Is he going to be back [in February] to play for the Canadian Olympic team?' I'm the optimistic coach, but that's how it might turn out."
