VinnyLC would be a MASSIVE pickup, the only problem He requires a MASSIVE payment, we're talkin big-time. But one of the main points of getting him is to complement certain guys, and you don't trade a younger player with a higher upside, plus a minimum 60 point center, for a guy like that.

IF dealing for him is even a remote possibility, you also get Kubina out of T-Bay and make this one a blockbuster. Much as I pretty much know there's about .005% chance of us getting Vinny, you can always speculate and hope.
I dispute the claim that Ales Hemsky has higher upside than Vincent Lecavalier. Also, Lecavalier is on a very reasonable contract for a player of his calibre and a new deal with him would be negotiated under a (presumably) much more favorable CBA. If Kevin Lowe can give $1.5 million to Georges Laraque, he can give Lecavalier $2.6 million.
