Steven Stamkos, a prominent figure in the Tampa Bay Lightning's history as a forward, encounters uncertain contract discussions as he nears the end of his existing agreement. Despite his expressed wish to remain in Tampa Bay, recent conjecture, particularly highlighted on the "32 Thoughts" podcast, has raised the prospect of Stamkos being dealt if uncertainties arise during the 2024 postseason.

EF (32TP): "What happens if Tampa is a bubble team and Stamkos isn't signed at the end of the season?"

Marek: "Well, that's what Julien BriseBois talked about at the beginning of the season, we need to see what the season is going to be like here"

EF: "Teams are going to call"

Interestingly, the Boston Bruins, previously considered unlikely candidates for Elias Lindholm, have now emerged as possible contenders for Stamkos. Given the Bruins' active pursuit of a top center, Stamkos appears to be an ideal match. His scoring abilities, leadership attributes, and considerable experience present an attractive prospect for a team aiming to strengthen its roster.

As the saga surrounding Stamkos's contract continues, the Bruins' potential interest brings an intriguing dimension to this ongoing NHL season. The developments in contract talks and their potential ramifications for Stamkos's future stand as noteworthy narratives, particularly with the trade deadline looming closer.
