I know he who shall not be named mentioned it but it does make sense...if Tbay locks up Stamkos to a big deal then with them already going over their self imposed cap (assumption), Teddy Purcell could be a cap victim ala Ladd, Big Buff and co. last year. This guy was a freak in the playoffs. What do you think it would take to get him? A package of Foligno/Regin and Weircoch/Lee/Borowicki/2nd rounder (sp way off) for him?
Eklund has nothing to do with it. It simply makes sense with all their recent signings and if Stamkos signs for 7-8 mill and Hedman up for signing next season, they might not be able to afford Purcell. He'd be a great pick up at 25 years old.
