Take my word for it, teams looking to add to their roster in the coming 2-3 years is going to have to pay dearly and then some. If you can get such a solid player as Vinny Lecavalier for 4.5m per, you make room for him.
Slats really dropped the ball on this one. As usual, we in NY walk backwards heading into the future. We never figure out what kind of misstakes we make, hence we draw the wrong conclusions from them and make more misstakes.
Brad Richards has not declined on us, long before we got him I wrote that the player we got was the player we was going to get. If we expected more, we just scouted poorly.
Vincent Lecavalier would not decline on us. Lecavalier is what he is and he would have been a great center for so many wingers on this team, he really would have helped this team. He would have given us a PP. Etc etc etc. In 4-5 years he can be an excellent 3rd line center in the NHL and for 4.5m per that will not hurt you with a cap surely being 80+ and probably 90+.
Huge misstake by Slats.
