No need to worry

After Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos signed this 2008 NHL Draft preview magazine last Thursday, I lamented that we had "officially" run out of items for the Lightning's top draft pick to sign.

A few hours later, as we made our way to our nosebleeds at the St. Pete Times Forum, my concerns were unfounded. The young center graced the cover of that night's free Lightning Ice Time game program.

Now, if you find yourself in the same situation -- lacking something for Stamkos to sign -- I know of a "generous" Ontario-based collector who is willing to trade his unsigned Stamkos cards for signed items.

Hopefully, though, you'll do what I did -- politely refuse the offer. Somehow, it just didn't seem like a good deal.
