Stamkos will be a UFA in 2016 and will still be in his prime years.
I don't think it is out of the realm of possibility that he signs with Toronto at that point considering he grew up a massive Leafs fans.
Although, the only chance this happens is if the Leafs are a contending team at this point in time and Tampa is not a playoff team.
If you can offer a hometown kid max money and a winning environment, I don't see much reason for him to turn it down. Especially if his current team's future is up in the air.
