LeBrun: What if Red Wings Made Stamkos An Offer?

(Steven King/Icon Sportswire)

Pierre LeBrun was on Montreal’s TSN 690 on Tuesday evening.

As part of a larger discussion on Steven Stamkos, and on Bob McKenzie’s speculation about the Montreal Canadiens possibly being attractive to Steven Stamkos as a free agent:

“(Laughs) I love it. Well, this is what we’re headed for over the next four months, right? (Laughs)

Is that feasible?

“ Well, I mean listen. That is an important part to underline in all of this. So many people have made this a Tampa or Toronto decision. What about other teams?

“What if Ken Holland and Detroit, and the way they’ve properly managed their situation, going into a new rink – Steven Stamkos has played just across the border in Sarnia in the OHL – what if Ken Holland made a big offer? I’m not saying he will. Again, like Bob, I’m just putting this out there as theoretical, not as gossip.

“I mean, there are other teams who could step up and make him an offer if he goes to July 1. I think that’s been underplayed in all of this, there’s no question about it.”
