Steven Stamkos A Maple Leaf? I Sure Hope So
The two time 50 goal scorer's becomes a free agent in the summer of that year and there is a possibility he'll decide to return to Toronto to play for the Leafs (Stamkos's hometown is Markham, Ontario, Canada).
"It's a couple years away," said Stamkos in the Sportsnet.ca article. Stamkos said he is focus on winning with Tampa and the possibility of becoming a Leaf two years from now is not going to distract him.
As a Toronto fan, I would love to see the superstar (Stamkos) wearing the Maple Leaf on his chest. The team can use a 50 goal scorer.
In 2011, Stamkos and Tampa Bay went to the Eastern Conference finals. This year, however, the Lightning lost four straight games in the first round of the playoffs to the Montreal Canadiens.
The 24-year-old also missed the Olympics in Sochi, Russia because of a knee injury.
Stamkos a Leaf? We'll know in two years, but for now, Stamkos is still a Lightning.
