Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,
Here is why Lightning center Steve Stamkos said he is not worried about his contract situation:
“I think it’s close,” he said of a new deal. “I don’t think it’s far off. As close as we are, it’s not something I’m really worried about.”
They are the most declarative statements yet during a months-long negotiation that has produced angst among Tampa Bay fans worried about losing a franchise player, and a news blackout as both sides have kept negotiations out of the media.
“The less said the better,” general manager Steve Yzerman said. “The more you comment, the more likely one of us can say something that can be misconstrued.”
