Steven Stamkos is not coming to Toronto.
Stamkos's deal with TB is expected to come in at eight years, with an AAV of $8.5M.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 29, 2016
Taking the sting off of this signing is the fact that both Edmonton and Montreal totally got hosed on deals for their respective best players (although you could certainly make a case for McDavid being the Oilers' best player, and then Carey Price for Montreal).

What Stamkos staying put means for the Leafs remains unclear as they head into next season, but at least they didn't screw up big.
