Did we offer Sykora a contract?

According to www.twitter.com/*************

In other news that does not invlove Tanguay, Petr Sykora is in talks with the Leafs, but my gut still tells me he will accept Tampa's offer.

Keep in mind this guy is saying that Tanguay to Phoenix is done too. I don't put too much stock in twitter feeds that I don't know, but just wondering your guys thoughts?

I have been told Petr Sykora has been offered a contract from the Lightning, it's believed the offer is a 2 year deal worth around $2.75 million per year, more to come as i get it.
but I won't look at this as more than just speculation and a rumor site

If the Bolts happen to get Sykora i say we move St. Louis back to the MVP line and let Sykora play with Malone again with Stammer in the middle. I'd like these 2 lines a lot...its fun to think about, we'll see what happens...

Since Tanguay is a "done deal" to the Yotes, I wouldn't mind taking a chance on Sykora.

I'm very firmly saying no to Sykora. I do not want him around to poison this team, especially Stammer.

Thank you. It is getting very hard to tell what is true, and what is complete ******** based on a twitter feed. You have a bunch of eklund clones running around, and that is good for no one. I really wish places like HF would cut down on this ****.

Why are people not feeling Sykora? I'm curious.

I know a little about the guy, but not much.

If we can't sign Tanguay, it won't be for me that bad to sign Sykora but seems like he's decreassing his production on ice...

I'd like Sykora for 2.75 a ton more that Tanguay at 4.5-5 which is what Phoenix supposedly offered.

Allegedly, Malone is pushing for Sykora, too.

Yeah, but even Sykora can't fill the void of missing you in the stands.

They need you in the stands. You're the secret weapon.

What's funny is I show up at the 3rd period and Tocc, Malone and Smith are happy to see me but John Grahame shows up late to one team flight and everybodies pissed and calls him an alcoholic.

Priceless .

I think Sykora would be okay in Tampa. Cheap and somewhat reliable. I think he did good for the Pens in the playoffs, thinking back to Fleury getting shelled and Sykora being there to give the kid some confidence. Paid off in the end.

I don't think Sykora is a dressing room cancer. He seems quite classy, despite the heat he directs towards himself.

However, I'll give it to you that he's lazy. He's put up numbers, but bounced around the league for a reason.

Hahaha, oh my god.

How do you get kicked out of Russia for drinking too much? I don't even know what to compare that to.
