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.

There's another consideration: Vinnie and his family would be able to go out in public in Dallas without getting mobbed by fans. Not so in old Ville-Marie.

IMHO that could mean more than a few hundred grand to a guy who just got a 30$ million severance package.

Reading the latest posts in the Vinny thread on the mainboard here it seems to be down to Dallas, Philly or Boston if anything said there is remotely accurate.

It's all speculation, I can't wait for this gong show to be over.

He goes out all summer in MTL and I highly doubt if he was mugged all the time he would continue to live in town.

It comes down to term IMO.

If Vinny does not sing here I hope he becomes ennemy public number 1 with Danny Briere.

I missed the last few pages, but I saw earlier that he's going to take his decision within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Will he announce it, or do we still have to wait until Friday to find out?

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.

I'd be very disappointed if he goes to the graveyard that is Dallas.

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.

Somebody did a really fun statistical breakdown of how **** briere actually is. Despite all that clutchness, he's still a net negative to his team. That's how bad briere is.

He's played in Tampa mostly out of the spotlight for all of his career so playing in another non-traditional hockey market like Dallas seems about right for him.
