Me too.

They have a lot of depth at center but I'd rather see them trade a center to satisfy an actual need like fixing the defense or acquiring a better backup goalie than just for the sake of dumping Lecavalier. Someone would have to replace his production on the scoreboard and that someone may come with a similar cap-hit.

And maybe, just maybe, it would pay off to keep Lecavlier and stack Laughton in the AHL for year and have a capable callup in case injuries pile up. Right now they don't even have a borderline NHL player at the center position on the Phantoms roster and that's a main reason why their affiliate sucks that bad...
