Ever since the 2008 NHL draft, Toronto Maple Leaf fans and Steven Stamkos have been in mutual agreement that "Stammer"—as he's called by Bolts fans—would look great in the hallowed Blue-and-White.

However, since the day that he heard his name called first overall at that draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning, there has been a fairly large problem in the way. Why would the Lightning trade one of the three superstars of the game (the others being Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin) to Toronto?

I've read a number of articles on different websites and here on Bleacher Report. One recent article by Mark Gregory grabbed my attention and I thought I'd attempt to come up with a proposal that suits all parties concerned. Not easy when you're talking about a bona fide superstar!

Please bear in mind that this is all pure speculation at this point and simply my two cents.
