for a kid like him it would for worth the risk, giving up 4 1st for a franchise player like him would not be a problem

was it the yzerman effect, he is respected within the league and all the top players and others, is this why teams stayed away

looking at what just happened to weber its crazy nobody did the same to stamkos last year
You know the player has to actually sign it right? There may have been multiple teams that tried to get Stamkos to sign, but he ultimately may have wanted to stay in Tampa and work out a deal.
