Vinny the player fits EXTREMELY well in Montreal. His contract....maybe not.

Contrary to some reports out there, Vincent Lecavalier has NOT narrowed his choices down to just 1 team. The process is still ongoing.

I'd rather have Lecavalier than Desharnais any day but being 6'4" doesn't make him the messiah, but it wouldn't stop everyone from treating him like one. Plus I'm not sure it would have been a good move when after signing Vinny, we trade Plekanec and a 2nd round pick for David Perron.

Funny to read/hear all these insider's pass off their opinions as fact...when the one person who could actually be trusted in this whole thing IMO, Renaud Lavoie, hasn't said a damn thing.

But for Vinny's sake...the quicker he makes a decision, the better it will be for him. This whole thing will reach Lebron-like-decision-day proportions soon, and it will just increase the pressure he'll have to deal with wherever he signs.

So true. theyre like horoscope writers.

Your description of Dallas was perfect, then again Florida is a pretty ****** place too when it comes to a lot of those things. Maybe the guy just likes hanging out in the sun with no pressure.

But damn, this Habs team just won the division, has an aggressive new management team, deep pockets, and lots of good young players. A very good chance they are cup contenders during the 4 or so years VL would be here. Passing up a chance at a Cup in Montreal to play for a nothing team like the Stars? Whatever, good riddance I guess.

So much contradictory reports out there. Obviously the majority of these reporters have no clue or are being trolled, I wouldn't put much trust into what they say.

I'm cautiously optimistic Lecavalier signs with us. I just hope Bergevin didn't wear his draft day tuxedo when he met him which would have destroyed all his credibility.

Seriously, how ugly was that tuxedo? :

Exactly what I'm going to think if he signs with Dallas. We don't really know what Lecavalier wants and if he signs with Dallas it means he's not really interested in winning. I don't want Lecavalier to be a Habs if he doesn't want to win another cup.

Lecavalier has not chosen a team yet. Just got that confirmed.

Once every 2 years the last 6 years, I become a damn twitter and hfboards addict because of lecavalier. June/July is the lecavalier season. It's pathetic. Just sign with the habs already to cure my rumors addiction.

Lets say Vinny signs with Montreal, what jersey number does he wear? Any chance his idol Le Grand Jean, offers his #4 ?

Unknown unknowns, man.

The Perron deal is another bit of speculation, so we can't reasonably speculate on Lecavalier and then speculate on a post-Lecavalier trade.

The fact that he's big AND talented puts him ahead of every centre we've have had since the lockout. 5x5 is the upper limit of what I'd reasonably offer but that doesn't make him a bad fit at all.

Desharnais is a bad fit.
Gionta as 1st line RW is a bad fit.
Bouillon on the powerplay is a bad fit.

I've pointed that out in this thread before, absolutely agreed. Something is either up or nothing is up at all with Vinny for him to be keeping quiet, and these reporters are all blowing smoke up our *****. I'm hoping it's the former, and in a good way.

I hope Vinny goes elsewhere so we can have a thread of people whining about how he disowned Quebec, and Montreal.

Why would he come here? He can cheer for the Habs when he retires. Coming here just means he'll go from hero to zero every other week. The media will give him constant passes, but the fans will be like rabid wolverines.

Guy would be way smarter picking a team like Dallas. He'll be able to wind down his career quietly while playing with one of the premier playmaking wingers after St.Louis.

No way that numbers coming down. He can have 44 or 98(draft year) or whatever else he wants but not 4

I've been through the Sundins and the Hossas, don't get me started with Gionta, Cammalleri and Cole. They're good players but they're not rising your team to an other level.

Montreal is a far better franchise than Dallas in so many ways. For one, we don't have the stench of Bob Gainey's failure lingering in the halls here.
