This is exactly the type of deal Burke should be looking for, unfortunately the way Tampa is playing I highly doubt they trade their captain.
Be real dude... Lecavalier makes $7.7m for the next 8 years, and has been on a decline over the past 2 1/2. He's not a really good #1 centre anymore, he's become a mediocre 1st line C that then got pushed down the depth chart to #2. He's currently the 5th highest paid C in the league (where 6th makes $400k less), and that does not seem destined to change anytime soon. Richards will be looking at a paycut and Stamkos might get into that range.

Burke should be looking for a young guy to grow with our team.....not an albatross contract to a declining player that is going to screw us over for the next 8 years -- the time frame when we actually have a chance to be good. If Toronto wanted to get rid of Komisarek, they could do it with a lot less pain.
