Really, the guy to watch in the next two months in Tampa Bay Lightning centre Steven Stamkos. There has been no update in contract talks between the two sides and there’s been a news blackout on any discussions. The belief in many circles is if Stamkos hasn’t signed by now then he’s not going to but that doesn’t mean he’ll be traded.

An intriguing situation has developed in Tampa Bay, one that should interest the Detroit Red Wings.
Jonathan Drouin, a top-three draft pick, wants out, and it’s worth it for the Wings to see whether they could land him.
On potential interest of the New York Rangers in Jonathan Drouin:
“Yeah, I would say it’s significant. It’s significant. Now, whether or not there’s a deal to be made is another thing and I don’t believe that the Rangers have a full grasp on what the asking price is. But I was working on this yesterday as well and they do have some interest.
BREAKING: HABS CH I can confirm from a strong source the Habs are aggressively pursuing Drouin.

Yeah, we’ll trade you. Maybe. If it works for us.
Patrick Marleau probably thought taking his feelings public would have him on a bus out of Silicon Valley very quickly. He’s still a Shark.
Elliotte Friedman was on Calgary’s Sportsnet 960 on Monday morning.
As part of a larger conversation on Jonathan Drouin:
“A lot of the GMs are overseas for the world junior tournament. I’ve been texting a couple – ‘What do you think?’ They’re saying the price is going to be high. I think they expect that. He’s still only 20 years old. He’s still a third overall pick. I spoke to one team yesterday that admitted that year, they had him ranked ahead of Nathan MacKinnon.
Agent for Drouin asked Lightning for trade

On the possibility of a blockbuster trade between the Flames and Lightning involving Steven Stamkos:
“Well, listen. Certainly Treliving, I think, has been on the phone to a lot of teams, from what I can gather. But I have no evidence to suggest that Brad Treliving and Steve Yzerman have spoken, sadly. I know we wish that was true.
After the 2016-17 season, some good goalies will be up for raises. Ben Bishop and Steve Mason, aces for Tampa Bay and Philadelphia, will be unrestricted. Based on their performance, age, and comparables, Bishop and Mason will be well within their rights to ask for multiyear deals over the $6 million threshold. Bishop helped backstop the Lightning to the Stanley Cup Final. Mason is coming off a very good season for a not-so-good Flyers team.
Will he stay or will he go?
The hottest topic in the NHL is the future of Tampa Bay Lightning centre Steven Stamkos, who is headed to unrestricted free agency July 1.
So TBay GM Steve Yzerman says looking for veteran right-shot D. That's P-E-T-R-Y. Stevie Y has Oly ties with K Lowe, Nicholson.#oilers.
