Thats how I felt a couple of years ago. I also didn't want him here.
Why? Because he can't carry a team. Guys like Parise, Booth and co just skates him to the ground.
But here my bet is that he would play on the 2nd line. We basically have 11 slugs up front. We can definitely afford to carry another star.
A huge advantage with LeCav is that
can critizise him for his
. He is definitely right there with the very best, if not the best, forward on the PP. Great shot. Great decisionmaking. Great vision.
The problem is his speed.
I would also like to add that
he isn't that expensive.
7m per. Like Mats Sundin was offered 10m for 1 year from Vancouver. Any other of the mega stars would defenitely get the same on the UFA market. There is a substansial diffrence between paying someone 7m and 10m.
