Not sure about you guys but i do not like this deal at all for the Leafs. Sure Lecavalier could be that missing piece. But it is too risky with the length of his contract an age.

Lecavalier averages 69 pts in an 82 game season throughout his career. That is playing with St. Louis, Malone, Richards, Stamkos etc. Since the lockout he has been on pace for 68 pts in an 82 games season and has been on a 5 year steady decline (on an 82 game pace).

I would love to see Lecavalier line up next to Kessel. He is a very good player. But with his production, age and declining stats i wouldnt trade anything of value for him. 7.7M for nine more years for a 69 point centre? No thanks.
