Steven Stamkos(notes) of the Tampa Bay Lightning is having an incredible offensive season. But he is no match for the Stupendous "Stankos", who was unleashed on an unsuspecting public via a Versus graphic during Monday night's Dallas Stars shootout win over the Washington Capitals.
What a unprecedented hockey hybrid: The rifle shot and goal-scoring abilities of Steven Stamkos, combined with the utter pain in the ass that is Corey Perry(notes) of the Anaheim Ducks! Upon creation of a Ryan St. Getzlouis clone, there'll be no stopping him!
Oh, and what a glorious fail on the part of the NHL's cable home, at least according to the dozen or so readers who have forwarded this folly our way.
The silver lining for Versus: No one with DirecTV is aware of this error. Well, until now.
