Sather tells Brooks this on April 1st and we have reason to believe that it's the truth?

I have a hard time believing this. It may just be a stupid April Fool's joke by Sather. I cant say Ive ever heard of a GM talking to a part owner about making a trade for a the player drafted first overall in that year's draft who was 20 games into his career for 2 or 3 prospects/young players. That seems like a Milbury move to trade a young, high-caliber player for something like Dubinsky, Del Zotto, Grachev(the last two were still in Juniors). Plus since when does Sather talk to the media period? Let alone about trades that fell through.

IF this is actually the truth, it really sucks. Stamkos would do wonders for this team for years to come.

LOL. Hmmm 2 or 3 of a list could be Girardi & Callahan for the 1st overall pick??? LOL. After 2 months in his rookie season? LOL. That is insane. Nobody would ever be that stupid.

Because on this one arbitrary day where gimmicky crap happens, nothing of substance or truth can transpire?

Explain why Sather would pick April 1st to talk about it. Because everybody's going to be so happy about it?

Well, what is even less likely than Sather talking to the media about hockey... is this cigar smoking dullard actually have enough sense of humor to play a joke on Brooks.

Besides, if Brooks thought he was messing with him, why would he bother writing about it. Journalists aren't unfiltered mouthpieces who print everything they're ever told..

Well, we've pretty much all concluded that Brooks is an idiot that will print anything for more readers; hes a journalist.

This is one of three things;

An April fools crack by Sather gone horribly wrong

A delayed April fools joke by Brooks

A plea for his job by Sather by pointing out he almost completed a deal that would have greatly benefited the franchise.

There's no chance that TB management would have changed their mind about Stamkos after two months. No chance.

I agree. They sacrificed a head coach to prove their faith in him. To turn around and deal him shortly thereafter would've been a PR nightmare.

Stamkos is a beast. I'm rooting for him to win the goal scoring race.

Trading an early 20's 1st round pick and a 3rd round pick for the first overall pick in the same draft (Who was playing in the NHL at that point in time while the other were still playing in the OHL), I think most fans would pretty happy. I mean I'd be streaking down the quad to the gymnasium (See if anyone gets that reference lol).
Honey, you think KFC is still open?

And we were never going to get Stamkos. I call BS from Sather/Brooks

This is crazy.

Why the hell would Sather be talking about this at all.

Something weird here for sure.

Some things to consider: This was probably at a time when Barry Melrose was coach and Stamkos's ice time and production were very limited (his +/- rating was horrible and he didn't have more that 6-7 goals IIRC and the Bolts were playing pond hockey under Melrose (no system). Len Barrie was on the administrative staff and he's done/tried to do some really dumb things.

I think there may be some truth here. There were rumors that Stamkos was being shopped early last season and the Tampa owners came in as a "win now" group. Long term, it would have been a terrible move for Tampa and great for the Rangers but if you put yourself in the mentality of the Tampa owner a year and a half ago, it isn't implausible. It's been pretty well documented that Barrie was a whack job. That never hurts when you are trying to fleece someone.

Best part of the article is the blurb about Pronger being a problem in the Philly locker room...

Also the article is dated 4/04/10 so where is everyone getting April 1st in this?

This is a tactical move from sather to help secure his job. People will look at that and say, "he almost got us Stamkos? wow". This is also a move by Brooks to make money.

The two go well together(Brooks/sather)

Yup, this was my first thought as well.
It's obvious that his days are numbered.
When was the last time Sather openly spoke to the media about a major trade that fell through, especially during the season?

More proof for Sting that tanking isn't necessary to have a successful rebuild and franchise.

We never heard anything about this on the Tampa side at all. Me thinks Brooks had a slow day and decided to make something up. Again.
