do you guys just completely ignore Stamkos' comments not even a WEEK ago in which he said he wasnt worried about the contract because of how close the two sides were?

there is nothing to get nervous about.
1. I'm sleeping just fine at night. I'm certainly not holding my breath waiting for Stamkos' press conference introducing him as the latest Flyer. My hunch is that he stays in Tampa.

2. His comments mean nothing to me. Honestly, what else would you expect him to say?

3. You don't think that Pens or the Caps fans would have been worried if their GM had allowed Crosby or Ovechkin to get anywhere near free agency?

4. Stamkos is the most coveted player in the league to reach this point under the new CBA. He plays for a team that might be vulnerable to RFA poaching. There's a good chance come Friday he's got 10 offer sheets on his desk. That's all anyone is saying. It doesn't have to be the Leafs or the Flyers. It could be the freaking Edmonton Oilers for all we know.
