The Official Vincent Lecavalier Thread

I am surprised noone mentioned this but on After 40 minutes on CBC this Saturday they mentioned that Tampa was "exploring" the possibility of trading Lecavalier this summer and were trying to see what they could get. Al Strachan said something like they inquired about both Kostinsyn brothers + Komisarek. He said the owner had promised Vinny he would not be traded this season but nothing else.

Eklund today mentioned that the Habs will make a very strong push this summer for Lecavalier.

Ek was merely placing his chips for his own hits push during the offseason.

As far as the supposed proposition goes, no.

I'll keep both Kostitsyns and Komisarek.

**** Vinny, he had his chance to come here and didn't. Now he has a stupid contract, Tampa can have him. He'll be an elite player for maybe another 5 years and that's it.

No, he was completely speculating. Strachan was just using those players as an EXAMPLE of a possible offer that could be made. Thats the way I interpreted it anyways.

I never once heard him say that Tampa "inquired" about those players.

Lollll..Both Kosty+Komi for Vinny..that's funny.

TB has absolutely no leverage over Vinny. They HAVE to make some moves and Vinny has a NTC with a HUGE contract.
So they already start with one hand tied behind their backs.

Not only this, but they're in a financial fiasco right now. Adding both Kost+Komi would pretty much be the same in terms of salary/cap than keeping Vinny.
It would also be an overpayment on our part for a player that only has 2seasons with 80+pts out of 9. If he keeps the same pace, he won't even average 1pt/game this year. No way Gainey would give up so much.

Lastly, if TB were to be moved, doing so without Vinny might not be the smartest idea.


It is a fishy subject, but I'd be incredibly surprised and disappointed if we'd let the Kost Broz+Komi go for an overpaid player with too many years on his contract.

Overpaid? no. Too many years on his contract? yes!

No Vinnie please

If he gets hurt like Rick Dipietro or goes into a slump at 8-10 million a season, his life in Montreal will be A LIVING HELL.

He knows that he won't even be able to take a dump in peace in this city.

Komisarek = UFA this summer, no longer a Habs... unless resigned, but there wont be sign & trade from Gainey

Strachan showed everyone he has no clue with this one...

Vinny is close to a 7M cap hit if I'm not mistaken. Starting next year, he'll be making 10M for the following 6years. That's 7years at 10M.

He isn't worth 10M.

Like I said, he only had 2 seasons over 78pts. That is not worthy of 10M.
He is overpaid and his contract is ridiculously long. He's signed until he'll be 39/40.

He (Strachan) never said they inquired about the Kost bro's and Komi...he said. "lets say...(a deal involving the aforementioned)"...it was purely hypothetical and clearly so.

Well his cap hit still stays at 7.7 million but I still don't want him.

I wish Al Strachan was a hypothetical.

For what it's worth, in my EHM season both Lecavalier and Ovechkin were traded to Edmonton in 2009.

Even worse, he first suggested trading the Komisarek brothers...

What's the point of the 10M$? It's Gilette who will have to pay for it, the only thing that interests me is the cap hit, wich is the price Vincent is worth. But the contract is too long, plus he has this injury on his shoulder that hasn't healed yet.

Btw Lecavalier is worth 10 mil imo, he's one of the best players in the world, but his contract is 1) too long and 2) non affordable for a team like Montreal, who's going to spend big bucks on its own franchise player, Price.

If there's one person who has less credibility than Eklund, it's Al Strachan.
