League Wide Talk

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, - ... The past couple of years, the back-to-back Cups, it has been easy to overlook Stamkos. The spotlights were on Vasilevskiy or Kucherov or Hedman or Brayden Point. But now it is impossible to look away from No. 91, who has turned in one compelling performance after another and who has simply refused to allow his team to lose. This all started when Stamkos was selected first overall in the 2008 draft, a year before the Lightning grabbed Hedman at second overall after the Islanders had chosen John Tavares. But you could make a more salient point by suggesting this all was actually enabled when Stamkos eschewed unrestricted free agency in 2016 and instead signed an eight-year extension with the Lightning for an annual cap hit of $8.5 million. - There is a fair amount of chatter from multiple industry sources that the Devils will be in on impending Toronto free agent goaltender Jack Campbell if he hits the open market on July 13.... - So we’re hearing this new Pittsburgh ownership group may not be so enamored with Brian Burke keeping his post as president of hockey ops after a second straight first-round flameout.... more on each of the above topics...
