He would get alot more than that.
Doesn't Crosby get 1M from reebok? And you think Stamkos would easily double that ? I am not sure I buy it. Either way, we both have no idea what he could get. And the taxe differences would equate around 1M difference.

Wishful thinking, but should be nice.
I really see Crosby as a very respectful person and doubt he will walk out on Pittsburgh. 2 years and we will know for sure.

Now, in all of this, I think what is missing is Stamkos is showing he wants to play for a Hockey City. if (IF) the teams mentioned are some of the teams he wants to play for, he wants to play somewhere that hockey matters. Don't forget a hockey star in Tampa gets a few endorsement deals, but put him in a hockey city and the deals get rich. Ie nike, rebook, easton, bell, tim hortons, gatorade etc.

Combine that with the fact that he feels TBay is trying to low ball him and I could understand the want to go elsewhere, however I do see this as a negotiating maneuver and would think TBay is still leading the way.
Sorry Sevil, I don't buy the Kool-Aid. Playing in Tampa hasn't stopped Vincent Lecavalier and Buckaneers players from getting major sponsorships.

I'm not assuming he'll walk in order to walk to Montreal.

There are good chances. Its a known fact that his favorite place, team was Montreal. Of course he doesn't go against his allegiance to the Pens but just like Gretzky was a die hard Wings fan Crosby was a MTL 1.

No.

I just said I think he's likely to leave Pittsburgh when he turns UFA. I don't know where he'll go.

kk, Bucaneers aren't playing their sport in a nontraditional market, southern america loves their football the same can't be said for Hockey. Of course a Tampa trade of stamkos is suspect at best but the sponsorships available to athletes playing in Canada versus those playing in (Carolina/Atlanta(when it was around)/Tampa/Florida/Pheonix/ etc.). Sure the big sponsorships like Stamkos with Tissot, and Reebok(is that right?) will always be there but the smaller ones where you can accumulate 1/10 of the big ones are definitely more prevalent in Canada think, large Dealerships, fast food chains etc. Its defintely more prevelant.

No... He just knows that adding the Habs to his rumors = more hits.

Sure sounds like a certain source that is considered a insider on this site.

Quick question (as I know nothing about Twitter). Can the guy make money off of the hits he gets on this Twitter page? That would explain why he targeted these 3 Canadian markets.

Still, this is a pretty sweet rumor.

True that.


And more ******** from his followers, too. I'm glad I don't follow this guy.

Guess all the know it alls didn't know enough. To be honest he isn't correct every time but I have been following him for awhile now. I would say he is about 60/40 on his news. Which isn't bad considering ole Ek is about 2/98.

The Flames have dropped like a rock. I'll bet JI is available at deadline if they have another poor season...

You know what's the scary part if Stamkos were to ask for a trade? The Flyers can actually make a good pitch to get him over to Philly.
