Just when you thought StamkosWatch 2K16 couldn't get any sillier, things are right back to where they started over a year ago. A quick look at Stamkos' Twitter profile shows that, once again, the only item in his likes is a post speculating whether or not he'll head to Toronto or not.

As we get close to turning over a new year, it's again time to check in on how the whole Stamkos situation is shaking out in Tampa.  In short, it now looks like we're starting to get near "I can't believe this still isn't done" territory, and with 83 days until the trade deadline, you can only assume this thing is going to get magnified at a new level in the coming weeks. 

But while the chances of Stamkos' departure seem to be increasing, it's bringing with it the debate among Leafs fans about whether cracking the vault for him is actually the best idea.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have seven days to go before they next take the ice in a game.. and apparently, the club will be pretty busy moving players up and down in that time. 

The Leafs, according to TSN's Jonas Siegel, will be bringing Jonathan "Nelson Mandela" Bernier back up from the AHL's Toronto Marlies next week for the game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. 

James Reimer, in addition, is expected to be ready to play; that means that the Leafs will no longer be carrying a goaltending tandem made up of their two AHL prospects heading into their game on the 15th. 

Translation? Garret Sparks is headed back to the Toronto Marlies.
