"Victor and I are extremely close friends, we came up in this organization as 18-year-old kids. To say that we're going to be together for the long run, and on one team, that's something special. We have talked a lot throughout this process. I joke with him that sometimes I forget the time difference (with Sweden) and I'm calling him at 4 in the morning. But he's always getting back to me as quick as he can. It was extremely exciting to see him sign. A big reason why both of us stuck around is because of the relationship that we have as teammates and as friends as well."

-Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Pierre LeBrun of ESPN has much more on Stamkos plus other hockey notes...
