It's also expected that Lecavalier will ask for no-move or no-trade protection.
Wow, someone could end up signing a really solid player for a sub-5m cap hit. Unbelieveable.
If Lecavalier is willing to go 1m per on two bogus years at the end, his cap hit goes
. Just unbelieveable on today's market.
27 / 7 = 3.85m per
Slats gotta go in on Lecavalier if he could be had for sub-4m per.
