This is a little late, but I am still catching up on this weeks' online readings and came across this. If you have read my weekly links posts over at Raw Charge, you will know I am a big fan of the 30 Thoughts that Elliotte Friedman does, this week he has two points on St. Louis:

12. Was waiting with Martin St. Louis before our scheduled interview at the NHL junket in New York earlier this month. Holding an empty bottle of water, he pointed at a garbage can about 20 feet away. "If I get this in, I don't have to do the interview, ok?" he said. Should've known never to bet against him. He still did the interview, though.

13. St. Louis on Tampa's very positive 2010-11 season: "That's last year. No longer matters."

The first one sounds like a Marty thing to do and the second one is what I want to tell everyone who asks me in a season preview if the Lightning can match last year.
