If I absolutly have to bet on an eventual destination for Lecavalier, it would be Chicago. They have plenty of interesting young and talented d-men to give, and they could add a guy like Toews, which habs don't have.
Chicago doesn't have as much free space from pending UFAs. And the contracts they will have to dish out in the near future are much bigger than what the Habs will have to dish out, especially with the bad signing (in terms of total $ given) to Sharp. It created a precedent on their team where you'll see young stars like Toews and Kane wanting more than Sharp.

They are way better off keeping Toews.
