The Hurricanes and Stamkos have finally come together on a deal. The team and the player have agreed on a two-year deal that will see Stamkos make $7,400,000 a season.
Steven Stamkos accepts Hurricanes offer. He signs a 2-year deal worth $14,800,000 ($7,400,000 per year)
Have to imagine going into the off-season the Hurricanes were not expecting his contract to get that high. Stamkos will be a UFA at the end of his deal in two years. The Hurricanes will have to deal with John Tavares as their UFA loyalty next summer.
