Amidist all the rumors of Steven Stamkos signing with the Boston Bruins, he revealed the true reason why he decided to sign a contract with the Nashville Predators.

After 16 memorable seasons with the Tampa Bay Lighting, 10 of which as their Captain, Stammer and GM BriseBois could not come to an agreement which led to him signing an $8million contract with the Preds.
STEVEN STAMKOS HAS SIGNED WITH THE NASHVILLE PREDATORS 🤠

FOUR YEARS, $8M AAV FOR STAMMER TIME 😱

There has been loads of discussion if at 34 years old he can still be an elite goal scorer in the NHL, but just last season he put up 40 goals and 41 assists for 81 points.
There were rumors of him re-signing in Tampa and was also linked to Boston, but Stamkos revealed why he signed with the Predators.
Stamkos said he tried to make things work so he could stay with the Lightning, but "it didn't work out."

"It's not for a lack of effort on my side (to try) to make things work out in Tampa, but it's not fair to Nashville for me to sit here and say I really wanted to be in Tampa," Stamkos told TSN. "Everyone knows I did. It didn't work out, and I'm just as thrilled to be joining the Nashville Predators for a multitude of reasons. You can see by how aggressive they've been today that their commitment to winning is second to none." - Stamkos
