Lightning Rumors: Fellow Atlantic Division Team Linked To Steven Stamkos


Recent NHL rumors have ignited speculation about the Boston Bruins' interest in Steven Stamkos, the Tampa Bay Lightning's esteemed captain. 

The connection between Stamkos and the Bruins was reignited by Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now, who raised the possibility of Stamkos potentially joining the Bruins' roster.




Notably, Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney reportedly made a compelling push to acquire Stamkos back in 2016 during his free agency, and he also pursued another star center, John Tavares, in 2018.


While Stamkos has expressed his disappointment over the lack of contract extension talks with the Lightning, it's essential to acknowledge his deep connection to Tampa Bay, where he's been a cornerstone player for years. 


The Lightning's management is expected to make significant efforts to retain him.


Stamkos continued to produce last season, scoring 34 goals and 84 total points across 81 games played. He's picked up right where he left off so far this season, scoring two goals and four points over the first two games of the season.


Any potential move involving Stamkos would hinge on various factors, including his contractual status and the Lightning's performance in the coming months. 


As the NHL season progresses, the Stamkos-to-Boston rumors continue to captivate the interest of hockey enthusiasts, with the potential for an exciting twist in the near future.

Personally, I see him retiring in a Bolts jersey but who knows.
