One of the big names on the free agent market is undoubtedly Steven Stamkos, and he is linked to the Montreal Canadiens.

The connection is easy to make with Martin St-Louis and Vincent Lecavalier. However, the latest news suggested it would never happen.
Indeed, the Lightning and Julien Brisebois confirmed that Stamkos was a priority for them, but also that he would test the free agent market a few hours later.
Then, the Lightning traded Mikhail Sergachev and his $8.5 million contract until 2031, which suggested they were making room to keep the captain in Tampa Bay.
Major turnaround, as the Bolts just acquired the rights to Jake Guentzel, so a contract announcement should come today.
"Latest addition coming to Tampa!

We have acquired forward Jake Guentzel from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2025 NHL Draft."

- Tampa Bay Lightning

Obviously, with his current contract ending tomorrow, the Lightning must be sure to sign him before midnight; otherwise, they will have simply lost a third-round pick for nothing.
In my opinion, Stamkos is coming to the Canadiens, and he will be a perfect leader while awaiting the arrival of Ivan Demidov and other forwards in the club.
This is just a prediction and not a rumor. I could obviously be wrong, but one thing is certain: there will be a new captain in Tampa Bay next season.
