And I'll throw this out there - Stamkos coming to the center of the hockey universe would make him rival Crosby's popularity.

star players dont want to play in toronto because of the popularity

stammer's got it good, franchise player going to hit his prime as all these young guys start coming into their own, stevy y at the helm to fill in the gaps, and living in florida

i was gonna get a legit tb away jersey and get j dro to sign it but slacked off, gonna regret that

Ya but Stamkos knows the Toronto market, grew up a diehard Leafs fan, and had his contract with tampa duration end when he's ufa age. He knows that he could go from a obscure-ish expansion team to, quite frankly, being a god in the center of the hockey universe.

Kessel is a shy Star Player. He's playing in Toronto. But I agree with you in a sense that Toronto needs a spotlight craving type of player to sign. But Kessel isn't really marketable. If one of the most marketable nhl players played for that Forbes #26 hockey market it would benefit the whole league.

bolts will sign him to a long extension next summer prob

i hate to burst your bubble i think stamkos in toronto would be dope i just dont see it happenan

toronto needs to rebuild like everyone else and get a star through the draft but itll never happen because they have money to blow and pressure to do so

That could definitely happen. I'm just trying to get some pre jelly going. I'm use to disappointment but the hype train has already started and it can't stop, not in Toronto.

I'm a big supporter of tanknation, I hope we do shit the next couple of years and draft high... so we can have a team ready for Stamkos to lead

i get the idea that phil kessel's dream job was being the guy at a college frat kegger who's frankly too old to be there

he just fucked it all up by being very talented at hockey
