Stamkos to Toronto Rumours Heating Up
It seems as though the possibility of Steven Stamkos coming to the Maple Leafs isn't such a pipedream after all.
Yesterday, TSN and Sportsnet hockey panels were discussing Stamkos's future beyond this season as his contract is set to expire. With the possibility of losing a former first overall pick for nothing, Tampa Bay Lightnings GM, Steve Yzerman must be desperately doing everything in his power to keep Stamkos a Lightning for life. As of this point, however, that isn't the case as contract talks have not gone anywhere.
However, that hasn't stopped Stamkos from having a little fun with Leafs Nati0n, as he did today liking a particular tweet regarding himself and the Leafs:
Why he chose to like this particular tweet is anyone's guess at this point. Maybe he just wanted to watch the video later on as it caught his interest. Maybe he is just playing the devils advocate and is messing with the fans of both the Leafs and the Lightning (He has done something like this once before). Or maybe he is secretly telling Leafs Nation that he is coming home for sure on July 1st.
Either way, it will most certainly get the hopeful fans, even more, anxious of his possible homecoming. But don't get too emotionally attached to it, though, because a lot of things need to go right in order for it to happen.
Then again, I thought the same thing about Babcock, so you never know.
