1. Contending team that was on the brink of reaching the Finals last year.

2. Gets to be re-united with his former NHL and junior linemate, Brad Richards. Richards contemplated to join the Bolts too when he was a FA before he chose the Rangers.

3. Connection with the head coach is huge. Lecavalier played his best hockey under John Tortorella and won the Stanley Cup.

4. NYC - nuff said.
That's really nice of Vinny to sign a 1 year deal and leave millions on the table... bc it's NYC - 'nuff said.'

... He gets to reunite with Torts... the guy who made his life miserable... but wait - he played with Richards 10 years ago... With this logic maybe he goes to Philly to play with fedotenko or SJ to play with Boyle...
