A Collective Sigh of Relief

Tampa Bay Lightning fans can breathe a little easier tonight, I know I will! (So glad I don’t have to talk you down from a ledge all the way from Boston! -L) Steven Stamkos has agreed to terms with the Lightning franchise. That’s right girls, we get him for 5 more years!!!!!! (The Stammer and Downie Bromance lives on!…and so does our hopes of marrying best friends ; ) -L)

“Steven is extremely important to this franchise and is part of the foundation of our hockey team,” Yzerman said. “We are very pleased to have him signed and look forward to seeing him in a Lightning uniform for years to come.” (press conference 7/19/11)

This would have been awkward if he left...

Many of his teammates, including Mr. Nate Thompson, and countless fans never doubted his loyalty and knew he would reach an agreement to stay in Tampa. We are all behind you Stammer, and can’t wait to go ALL IN with the Lightning in 2011!

This major contract announcement comes on the heels of a press conference held this afternoon to announce that hockey will be brought to Orlando…for one game. The Tampa Bay Lightning will play a preseason game vs. the St. Louis Blues at the new Amway Center  on Sept. 21st . All kinds of big news for hockey in Florida today! My happy dance will commence in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1……
