Tampa Bay Lightning well represented with Julien Brisebois and Mathieu Darche, but rumors suggest they could lose their captain Steven Stamkos.

Indeed, Stamkos will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, and many rumors are linking him to the Canadiens and Kent Hughes, Martin St-Louis, and Vincent Lecavalier.
It is known that Kent Hughes would be willing to sign a veteran for a good salary, but not for too long a term. Many people in the hockey world believe it, but we have just received news that throws a cold shower on this idea.
Mathieu Darche was a guest on Guillaume Latendresse and Maxim Lapierre's show, and the Lightning's assistant GM had a lot to say about Stamkos and his next contract.
Recall that the Bolts' captain did not really appreciate the delay and would have greatly preferred to settle his contract extension before the season began.
«After the trade deadline and during the playoffs, he was one of our best forwards, one of our best players in fact.

We want him to stay [in Tampa Bay], he wants to stay, the question is whether we can agree on a contract extension, but we are working on that right now.

Steven is an incredible person, he is a leader and plays a crucial role in the community here.» - Mathieu Darche

This says a lot about the Lightning's intentions and those of Stamkos. This statement distances him from Montreal, so the most optimistic will have to start getting used to the idea.
Steven Stamkos in Montreal would be major news, even at the age of 36. However, expectations should be moderated.
