Vincent Lecavalier - Signed in Philly
 
He's not going to be resigned by Tampa. What do you think about maybe bringing him on for 2-3 years?

The dude is attached to the hip with Tampa, I don't see him going anywhere for nothing more than 1 year & re-signing in Tampa for the end of his career.

This

I was hoping for brad Richards but now the rangers say they will keep him. Maybe briere is best option. I think the buyouts will be a lot lamer than thought.

Except that he has said he doesn't want to go back, he wants to move on, and he wants a long term deal this offseason. Other than that, I agree with you...

Quote:

He was asked whether or not he would consider signing a short-term deal in order to return to Tampa afterwards, and Lecavalier did not appear to like the idea.

"I'm sad to leave, but I'm moving on and I don't really want to think about going back," he said. "I'm not really there yet. I want to sign somewhere and I want to be happy, I want my family to be happy and we'll go from there."
In another article he spoke about wanting a long term deal so that he and his family could settle down in a new town.

Maybe he's telling the truth, maybe he isn't. He can't very well say "yeah I'm looking for a short term, 1-2 year deal so I can go back to Tampa" without really screwing himself in terms of interest from other teams. At the same time, maybe he really is looking for a new place to settle down. Nashville would be a great place IMO.

Nitrous Mafia 06-28-2013 08:25 PM

wat

the article i read this morning said he was trying to get traded to somewhere, get bought out there, and then come back to tampa. the nhl nixed that. so, supposedly he will get bought out, go somewhere for a year and then return to tampa.

Enoch 06-28-2013 08:30 PM

The preds should offer term and money. He has size, would immediately be the most talented forward we have, and he would add to the lockerroom. He really could be a perfect fit even if he has taken a step back.

I think we're probably a lot more excited about the idea than Vinny will be.

hockey diva 06-28-2013 11:12 PM

He will sign with Montreal. It's the only other team he would want to play for being a Francophone. And the city would welcome him with open arms till he ties his shoelaces incorrectly.

ThirdManIn 06-28-2013 11:13 PM

Source?

hockey diva 06-28-2013 11:17 PM

I am sorry I have no source. However, he is French-Canadian. Idolized Rocket Richard and the Habs. Why wouldn't he want to play for his childhood team?

Because he's played 15 years in tampa pretty much stress free especially since winning the cup but in montreal he would be expected to be the "savior" and would have to deal with media scrutiny of himself anf his family that is not there in other markets.

It really will depend on whether the "one year then back to tampa" plan is true

BigFatCat999 06-29-2013 07:25 AM

Also would his buyout be taxed oblivion in MTL?

I want a new French Connection line

Bourque-Vinny-Drouin

Vinny has it all. He's won a Cup. He's made the money. At this point he's looking out for his family so as far fetched as it is for him not to come here, this is the perfect spot for him and his family. Don't think players don't think about it.

I was listening to the radio the other day and they were interviewing Dunham's wife and she said mike is ready to move back here any time she wants to leave her job in Boston. It's a great place to be and players have loved it here. I don't think it's as much of a long shot as we think.

I am really thinking now that Nashville has some key cogs signed to long term deals that Nashville and being a destination for FAs will get better.

I'm not sure if Montreal would tax his buyout checks, but if they did he would make about $500k less in Montreal than he would in Nashville, Tampa, Sunrise or Dallas (all four teams in states with no income tax).

PFL615 06-29-2013 10:01 AM

Lebrun on twitter saying Lecavalier will have a short list if teams by tonight and provably down to one or two by draft time.

Asked if he would welcome an overture from the Habs, who purportedly had a deal on the table to acquire him four years ago, he said, Im open to anything. Montreal is a special place, with a lot of history, they have a good team as they proved last year. If I get a call of course Ill listen.

His cheques would go into a US acct I would assume and thus only his salary from the HABS would be taxable.

There are other teams capable of providing a "good family environment" that also happen to be in the East. :naughty:

To determine where Lecavalier gets to go, BFC and I settled on a duel with, like, flaming machetes or something. We're still working out the pay-per-view rights but will keep y'all updated. :nod:

Vinny ain't comin here

That's nice and all, and I wouldn't be surprised if he signed there, but the reason I asked for a source was because someone said the only team he would want to go to is Montreal. Your source is not probative.

If Canadian tax law is like US tax law it wouldn't matter. The money would be earned in the US, not in Canada.

However, I highly doubt Canadian tax law is like US tax law.

It isn't I earn a dividend off the US stock I own and it is not counted towards my income thus not taxed.

As for the link I provided it had been mentioned his agent commented that Vinny wanted to go play in MTL I just hadn't really looked for it and just a quick google search pulled up the story I linked.
