#2680436 Stamkos to... Tampa

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 29 June 2016 - 10:33 PM

The only good thing is he signed before July 1st. At least we didn't get strung along for 3 days while all the other free agents signed like Suter and Parise did.

I care. I think it's something to be proud of. It's certainly not something that comes easy. It shouldn't be a goal unto itself and I don't think it is. 

 

Tanking would be something were I would embarrassed for the team and disappointed in the organization.

 

I've been saying the Streak is important for a long time. Usually no one listens or responds. Management clearly wants to extend the Streak. Fans need to accept this. They can rail and rant against it, but saying it doesn't matter is silly. It matters and our expectations should adjust accordingly.

Wings never got a chance? So basically it was see how close the hometown team is to competing, then decide I guess?

On the lighter side of things, this got me good :D haha

Wow! The reaction to this signing reminds me of a child having a temper tantrum because the store they went to sold out of the toy they wanted. Stamkos re-signed with the only team he has ever known, it happens. We need to forget about Stamkos and move on.

 

Its not a sign and trade, TSN is reporting he signed for 8 years at 68 million. Detroit was going to offer 7 years at 70 million. It would make no sense for him to sign for more years and less money if it was a sign and trade.

This is how I pictured them pitching Stamkos an offer.

If someone could photoshop Babcocks, and Shanahans faces - that would be priceless!

wings lost a lot of fans past 2 seasons.

 

losing datsyuk and not getting a big name to replace him hurts a lot

Cbus bought out Tyutin. Hopefully we find a good trade partner so Kenny can stay away ha.. Would rather have Quincey back than Tyutin.

Is he being paid with Canadian currency or Canadian Tire Money?

KH better get Belle Tire on the phone


I found this Stamkos Contract Calculator in TSN. And Detroit is the best option for net salary.

oh and also this:

There's no way you choose Okposo and Backes over Stamkos. We have more than enough depth throughout the entire lineup. You know what we lack? Elite level talent. There is only one elite level player that will hit free agency, quite possibly the best player (taking into account age) that has ever hit free agency, including pre-salary cap... You don't pass that up for two depth players...

If Stamkos signs elsewhere, then we look at other options, but you don't pass on a player of his calibre... for depth...

I think we'll land one free agent, possibly two, but not two huge names. But I love the enthusiasm of some, thinking that adding not one, not two, not three, but four or five new names is even a remote possibility...

Filip Hronek was selected today by Saginaw of the CHL import draft. Hopefully he reports so we can keep closer tabs on his progress.
