He'd still be playing 20 minutes if it weren't for Stamkos. He's worth more than Brad Richards.

I understand the hesitancy, mainly because he's probably going to have a hard time scoring 30 goals. But this guy can still put up 80 points with this team.
I could go along with that line of thinking. I'm just not sure that this club would excite a guy like Lecavalier. Signing a guy like VL would allow the Jackets to re-sign VP and have a top line of Prospal-Lecavalier-Gaborik. It drops Anisimov to the second line and might allow JK to use Johansen as trade bait to better this club.
