Lecavalier is unlikely to be traded, doing so opens a big hole in their lineup. They would likely want Gagner but he seems to be hitting his stride. I wouldn't give up on him now.

Trade for a cheap vet and stay the course. Tampa would want a lot for their captain (rightfully so) I don't see it as a move the Oil should make..
