Podcast: ESPN's LeBrun says contract saga a 'burden' to Stamkos
Steven Stamkos may be out of the mania in Toronto, but his contract saga seems far from over.
The Lightning captain, in the final year of his current deal, doesn't have an extension as Christmas approaches, and there are some that wonder if it'll ever happen.
In this week's "Lightning Strikes" podcast, our special guest is ESPN/TSN hockey insider Pierre LeBrun, and he offers a well-respected national perspective on Stamkos' contract situation. McGuire remembers Stamkos saying at last year's All-Star Game that his intention was to sign an extension with Tampa Bay last summer, one year away from free agency. So what's happened since then? What's the holdup? Does the Lightning consider trading Stamkos if he can't be signed. How will this end? LeBrun answers those questions, and more.
Plus, in our #fromthefans segment, I'll offer my take on the Stamkos saga.
