Stamkos at optional practice in regular jersey

Anton Stralman looked to be close to returning to the lineup sometime soon, J.T. Brown too. But Steven Stamkos?

Brb, running around the block and punch-kicking the air.

Okay, we're back. Well, let's remember it's just an optional skate, meaning it's not a full-squad-hit-em-when-you-can-SO-MUCH-AGGRESSION-RAWR-PLAYOFFS type of practice. Players skate around, shoot some pucks, stretch their legs, no contact.

Why are they toying with our hearts like this? Sigh.

Okay, not showing any enthusiasm whatsoever. Nothing to see here!
