After rumors spread of Steven Stamkos potentially joining the Detroit Red Wings during this past offseason, it appears as though fans will have a hint of closure on what could have been.


Stamkos reportedly did not meet with the team’s organization one week prior to July 1st’s free agency period, and would not reveal if the Red Wings were ever truly in the mix for his services.



He told The Detroit News: “…All along I said I wanted to stay (in Tampa Bay). I’m not getting into the details of which teams called and which didn’t.”
