St.Louis signs four-year extension

Posted By Daniel Maloney On Jul 1 2010 @ 1:58 pm In Tampa Bay Lightning | No Comments

Martin St.Louis has signed a four-year,$22.5 million contract extension with Tampa Bay, essentially keeping the star forward in Florida for the remainder of his career.

It’s a great move-plain and simple.

The Quebec native scored 29 goals and added 65 assists last season, showing that he is still an elite player.

More importantly, it is well-known that he is a great mentor for a young rebuilding team.

Playing on a line with Steven Stamkos, St.Louis has had a huge impact on the development of the emerging superstar.

Trading St.Louis would definitely deal a sudden blow to the young centre at a fragile point in his career.

With St.Louis locked up for the next five years, Stamkos should experience continued success with a proven winner at his side.

As Steve Yzerman knows, you don’t often trade players like Martin St.Louis.

You keep them in your organization, and when their playing days are done, you hang their name and number in the rafters.
