Bolt Quote

“I’m not going to comment on that. We haven’t talked about that stuff in the media all season long, and I don’t know how they get a hold of stuff like that. All the things that we’ve talked about, it’s staying internally, and it’ll continue to be that way.” – Steven Stamkos on the rumored Lightning contract offer, Sunday at the Lightning’s family carnival at Amalie Arena.
