He's a good player but... there's always a but I do not think he would be able to do much in a Habs uniform, or not as much as everyone would want from him. The previous owner of TBay once said that Vinny would be the next Michael Jordan of his sport... not a chance! The expectations of this guy are way too high now, just imagine if he was ever traded to Montreal?
Oh I think Vinny is still very young. He's only 23, look at our roster: Ryder and Ribs are good today at 23, Souray plays his best hockey ever at the age of ... how old is he? 27? 28? Bertuzzi panned out as the best forward at 29?
I'm not Merlin, I don't own a magic cristal or whatever but there is still possibilities that Vinny Lecav can become a real great center like Sundin did later in age. He have the frame for it, the speed, the fantastic moves, the power shot, only missing some maturity and maybe something in his heart/brain. He's only 23, he will get 26 in 3 years and will get old in 10-15 years, he's there for a while in the NHL. Never know...
ps. don't get hypnotized by my avatar or you'll become Bougon, lol
