He only has 2 years remaining on his deal before becoming a UFA and he is exactly the type of player we need, and Burke likes.

Anyways, good deal for both Stammer and Tampa.  Nice that it wasn't a 10+ year deal for once.

Of all of them, Getzlaf might be the most realistic. He has connections to Burke, he's exactly what the team needs (and will still probably need 2 years from now), his current team looks like they might be on the downswing, he's not their marquee player (in fact, he's probably their 3rd most important guy from a PR perspective) and so on. Not that really expect him to end up a Leaf, but, I do think he's a more realistic possibility than any of the others brought up over the past few years.

I think there is a good chance he'll be a leaf after that deal is done. I know a lot of people say that Toronto players like to come home, but with him, I actually think it's true.

Seems like a decent deal, all think considered.
