from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes,
This is how desperate we are for news concerning contract negotiations between the Tampa Bay Lightning and All-Star center Steven Stamkos that we are down to dissecting every word uttered on the subject.
Such was the case Wednesday night, when Tampa Bay general manager Steve Yzerman went beyond his usual theme that he is “optimistic” a deal will get done. Yzerman did use that word again, but he added some substance that should give Lightning fans a reason to come in off the ledge.
“Yes,” Yzerman said when asked if he and Stamkos’ agent Don Meehan, to whom he spoke on Wednesday, were actually making progress. “We’re working towards getting a deal done. We’re going to get there. I’ll be patient and, again, optimistic that we’ll reach an agreement. I don’t want to give you a timeframe on anything, but I believe we’ll get there.”
