As has been stated, this was a tough move to make. I'm gutted, because you want to lose your captain like we lost Andreychuk: retirement after a Cup win. However, that rarely happens exactly like we want, and with the CBA the way it is these days, VL's contract was just too much for the Lightning to work with. I understand the move, but it doesn't make things any easier.

I have, and will always have, the most sincere respect for Vincent Lecavalier, and all he's done for this team and the Tampa community. He's been the face of the franchise, as well as our captain in recent years, and handled losing, injuries, and countless "Lecavalier to Montreal" rumors like a true class act. Thank you for everything Vinny, and we hope to see you back in Tampa with a bolt on your jersey.

Boy...this move hurts.
