I've never been to Buffalo and I'm super biased but Detroit has to be one of the most underrated cities right now.

It would just make too much sense all things considered. He gets to play with a team which will soon be a force in the league, an owner who is loaded, without the pressure of being the guy ( that's Eichel) and no media scrutiny at all. It's sad for us but it seems like a nobrainer.

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.

Does Filppula or Hudler provide something that our younger, cheaper guys already in the system don't?  I'd rather utilize our resources in acquiring something we lack ie a franchise forward, top pairing defensman, established goal scorer etc
