I also saw that the tampa bay fans always say they have the money and that it is never a problem. No offense to tampa fans but Tampa Bay was one of the teams that had an internal budget at just over 50 million this year. I also believe they said they would increase that budget this year though. But any team that has an internal budget doesnt have all the money the fans think they do. Tampa Bay fans just don't want to listen to that though.
The TB franchise is only worth a little more than what Stamkos is asking for in a long term deal. There is a very good chance he signs for a short term deal OR goes to another team.
