The Lecavalier trade that almost happened

I am not sure precisely the players involved; I am sure someone who listened to Mojo today could speak to it, but I think it was:

Lecavalier for Kaberle, Antropov, 1st round pick 2002, and someone else.

The Tampa Bay owner killed it. Can someone fill in the details?

Someone on the board, a Lightning fan (forgot who), told me that Hoglund was involved in the package, along with Kaberle and Antropov. Not sure about the 1st, though.

Hoglund was involved in the deal, Dudley has always liked him which is why he got a chance to make the Florida Panthers this year. Apparently that deal falling through was part of why Dudley left Tampa Bay.

If that deal had gone through the Leafs would have been the luckest team in the NHL, basically stealing two #1 pick, franchise players.

That's right it was Hoglund! Not sure about the first either.

Hmmm...(assuming no first round pick) would that have been a good trade?

*Kaberle a solid offensive top 4 D man lugging 24 minutes a game, 25 years old. 10 more years in him, easy.
* Antropov - as much a wild card then as he is now.
* Hoglund - decent forward, much maligned, somewhat unfairly in my books, basically a throw-in capable of making the Tampa roster at the time.

for

LaCavalier -- likely who would have become the Toronto Captain after Sundin. Still not finding his consistency yet.

hmmm.

hmmm.

Yup, Toronto would have won that trade, based on the old adage, "all things being equal, the team that gets the best player wins the trade."

Im sure they thought that Kaberle was expendible since we had Berard at the time (I think we did, at least.)

According to the Watters, the Leafs would have moved them for Lecavalier too. The deal was done, the Tampa Bay owner just had to sign to papers, but he blocked the deal instead.

Hoglund was not part of the Lecavalier deal. Dudley did like Hoglund though.

The deal for Lecavalier was going to be Antropov, Kaberle, Boyes and a 1st.

Woah, if that was the deal then I am glad they did not do it. That's not a good deal at all in my books. Although I don't think Boyes is going to be much at all.

I'm pretty sure (not positive) it was around January in the 01/02 season.

Keep in mind that Antropov's value was pretty low at the time. He was coming off knee surgery, started poorly in Toronto then was sent to St. John's for the remainder of the year.

I always thought we were in the hunt for Lecavalier, but that Ottawa was the team that was really in it. I think their offer included Bonk or Spezza.

It would have been pretty awesome to have gotten Lecavalier. He'd be the perfect replacement for Sundin.
