The Toronto Maple Leafs want Steven Stamkos. Badly.

There’s been enough fodder out there regarding the future of center Steven Stamkos with the Tampa Bay Lightning. You can find plenty of wishful-thinking posts on message boards and blogs that say where Stamkos should be (out of want by the writer) and such. And usually the destination is Toronto, as it's written by a Leafs fan author. It’s annoying. Player movement happens, banking on it happening a year prior is writing off a season and the events that could and should be taking place with your team in that span. And then crap like this happens. At a tam function. It's going to be oh-so-much fun playing the Leafs all season...

Steven Stamkos on-field shenanigans

I think what bothers me most isn't Stamkos enjoying baseball, he does that enough in town. It's thinking that if he were playing with the Tampa Bay Rays, he'd have already been traded.

Cody Kunyk signs with DEL team

grizzlys.de

Cody Kunyk has signed a one year contract with Wolfsburg of the DEL in Germany. His first full professional year in North America was a disappointment and after signing a two year ELC (the first year was burned at the end of 2013-2014 immediately after signing) he was not re-signed or tendered a contract as a restricted free agent by the Lightning. As an older prospect, he really needed to shine in the AHL to earn a second contract and he didn't do that with only 10 goals and 16 assists for 26 points in 69 regular season games with the Syracuse Crunch.
