A recent development reported by The Boston Globe hints that should Stamkos decide to part ways with the Lightning during free agency, the Bruins could look to sign him.
"Kevin Paul DuPont of the Boston Globe suggested in a recent article that if Steven Stamkos decides to test free agency when his contract is up, the Boston Bruins would be one team extremely interested.

In his article, he writes "If Stamkos decides to test the free agency waters, there would be considerable interest from numerous teams, including the Boston Bruins. Like Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, Stamkos is a right-shot center who showcased his skills with a career-high 106 points just two seasons ago."

Stamkos is signed through the 2023-24 season, but is a pending unrestricted free agent for the 2024 free agency period." - The Mug NHL


Having recently parted with key players like David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron, the Bruins might find Stamkos to be exactly what they need to be successful in the playoffs.

The Legend of the Lightning

Since his draft as the top overall pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, Stamkos has consistently raised the bar. The dedicated Lightning captain has steered his team to two Stanley Cups.
Stamkos scored 1,056 points over 1,003 games. His leadership and unwavering performance on the ice will give him the leverage to ask for a big salary, even at 33 years old. However, the Bolts might not be able to keep him for financial reasons.
