Hush. You are talking about my father.

I'm sure your father is a wonderful man. He's still wrong.

I'm hearing that the Leafs might get Steve Stamkos as a free agent.  That would go against the tank.  It seems like a strange year for them to go all in.  That being said, if you have the chance to obtain a player like Stamkos I say do it.

Stamkos isn't a UFA until the summer of 2016, so, any speculation about that now is extremely premature, and the odds that he even hits the market are exceptionally slim. What you're hearing is people that don't really know what they're talking about.

In fairness, "might" really doesn't imply any specific percentage or likelihood. So saying the Leafs "might" get Stamkos is indisputably true.

How do you like it, huh?

He does specify the Leafs might get him as a free agent - something, as of right now, he's not going to be this summer. Can't get someone as a free agent when they're not a free agent.

And, I like it just fine, thank you.

Well, then, sign Tyler Johnson instead.

Sure, but not when they'll get him as a free agent. "Might" doesn't imply a specific time frame.

Sure, in 2017. I think you need a timeout.

The Leafs are going to sign Shea Weber. Book it.

He may have been partially incorrect, but there have indeed been Stamkos rumours:

That's not a rumour. That's a blogger presenting an idea based on a comment in an article.

Hush.  My father had to have heard this somewhere, he would never make something like that up.  Whether it's rumours or speculation, I'm just sharing with you guys that it's out there.  Take it with a grain of salt if you want.  In fact, I already told you guys to do that seeing as it came from my father...

I used to feel that way. Then I found out about the whole Santa Claus fiasco.

And I'm Jewish so that lie didn't even make sense.
