There has been a lot of speculation as to whether the Steven Stamkos injury will keep him from playing in the Olympics. The word is that he will be named to the team but it is still uncertain as to whether he will play. Here is the word from twitter:
Just ran into MikeBabcock at HOF. He said that Steven Stamkos will be on Olympic roster and they’ll figure out later whether he plays or not

Early indication is #Lightning Stamkos didn’t suffer overly complicated break and Sochi Olympics isn’t out of question in 2nd week of Feb.

Stamkos will have his surgery today and hopefully all will go well. We here at Too Many Men really do adore Steven and sincerely wish him the best of luck in dealing with this injury. It would be absolutely tragic if he were to miss the Olympics.
