My point of view as a Habs fan, it exactly this, expect disagree with the last part, while most fans would not fault Vinny for going elsewhere, Mtl will disown him, he was given a huge pass for not coming to Mtl earlier on in his career, because while he said he loved Mtl and would love to play there, his "heart was in Tampa".
For me its time to see what kinda man Vinny really is.
The Red Wings are out of the bidding for Vincent Lecavalier, who is seeking a five-year deal for $5 million per season, which is a longer term and more money than Detroit is willing to offer. Lecavalier's agent told teams he has identified a club he wants to play for. It's believed to be Dallas.
The infamous aborted lecavalier trade a few years ago was talked about all around the internet for weeks before the draft. Renaud Lavoie at the time didn't mention anything about the habs trading for vinny until a few hours before the actual draft.
IMO Lavoie is gonna start talking about it when he'll know a 100% where Lecavalier is going.
Same thing for eklund. I wouldn't be surprised if he comes up with something like "Habs enters vinny sweepstakes full force (e4). Last minute strong push." He's gonna make it seem like he had information from his own sources, instead of following other twiter trends.
Wait Detroit is out??3-1 odds favorites??
Lol,what did i say?????How could Deroit be 3-1 favs if they didnt want to give hik 5 years???Puckdaddy odds =junk
Bottom line he likes Detroit and Montresl...if he goes to Dallas , going to hide.
it seems to be down to Dallas, Philly or Boston if anything said there is remotely accurate.
And then BOOM! Vinny signs a two-years, 3.5M deal with Calgary!
HFBoards implodes... again. Mass suicides in front of the Bell Center and the provincial government takes over the Habs' administration and gives a 5 years, 25M contract to Briere. Everything goes back to 'normal' within a few weeks.
