I thought Stamkos wanted to be the main guy?
Anyway, I can for sure see the appeal of playing in Buffalo or Toronto, but at the same time we are talking about what was the last place and 23rd place teams in the league as of a couple months ago. Up-and-coming is never a guarantee, and there's definitely a level of risk associated with signing the rest of your career away to one of those two teams. The Wings haven't been all that exciting the past few seasons, but at the very least we've been a consistent playoff team. For similar money, it might be more appealing to come to Detroit because we have a better track record of playing games that matter in April.


Buffalo and Toronto lit a fire and rolled dumpster down the hill for a reason,

The issue with Detroit is holes needing to be filled, players not being used correctly, and inconsistency

This team is two players away from being that good again, just getting someone here is the issue

Mckenzie evaluates Stamkos sweepstakes article.
 
"...the real focus seems to be on what Ill call the triangle. The three points of that triangle would be Stamkos hometown of Toronto, the Detroit Red Wings just down the 401, and then back across Ohio and Western Pennsylvania into Buffalo and Western New York."

Buffalo has a lot of talent on that team, they are up and coming. He may want to go play for them.
