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.
