Steven Stamkos had a remarkable season in 2011-12, scoring a League-best 60 goals, finishing second with 97 points, and being a finalist for the Hart Trophy.
So how does the Tampa Bay Lightning forward top all that?
Simple, he told reporters in Tampa on Tuesday.
"Get into the playoffs," Stamkos said. "That's the big key and that's our goal here as an organization -- get back into the playoffs."
The Lightning finished 10th in the Eastern Conference last season, eight points out of a playoff spot, after finishing fifth in the East in 2010-11 and advancing to the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals.
"We saw what we did a couple years ago," Stamkos said. "Just have to get in [to the playoffs] and things can happen. That's the model we have this year. We want to be a playoff team."
