Reno Lavoie is talking about a three-year/$15 million contract

Going into the season, there was a feeling that Steven Stamkos could actually leave the team in the 2023-24 season.

I even talked, last December, that we shouldn't rule out the idea of ​​seeing the Captain change his title this season.

My text on this topic:

Now the trade deadline has passed: Stamkos will finish the season in Florida and try to win his third Stanley Cup.

In his article on Friday, Renaud Lavoie emphasized that the tide appears to have turned on the issue. Insiders talked about a three-year/$15 million or so deal to stay in Tampa Bay.

This could be his final professional contract, as he is 34 years old and will turn 37 at the end of a three-year contract. Stamkos is worth over $5 million per year, but Florida is a great place and players who talk to Lavoie always say how much they love the city and the organization.

One thing is for sure, if Stamkos asks for a contract that matches his talent, I'm not sure if Julian Brisebois can give it to him. After all, despite the increase in the salary cap, Tampa doesn't have a lot of money and Mikhail Sergachev's contract will be back to active players ($8.5 million) next year.

In addition to Stamkos, who has 25 goals and 31 assists (before tonight's games) in 63 games in 2023-24, newcomers Anthony Duclair as well as Matt Dumba, Calvin de Haan, Hayden Fleury, Tyler Motte and Austin Watson will become unrestricted free agents. Client. It's not a large amount Of the money that leaves the block, therefore.

We shouldn't forget Brent Seabrook's (LTIR) contract is finally expiring.

Five million would be ideal for the captain and the team, in my opinion. After all, why ask for more money when you've made so much of it during your career and live in Florida 365 days a year?
