He have a lot of roster management to do in order to have a spot on the top 6 or even on the third line for him
Plekanec, Desharnais are centers and won't be move to wing. Eller have played wing before but he's much less effective. Galchenyuk played wing this season but he is the big center the organization have been waiting for for decades.
No point in trading Plekanec to make spot for Lecavalier. Plekanec is younger, better and his contract isnt bad.
Trading Desharnais, when we just re-signed him for four more years, is a move I don't suspect Bergevin to make any time soon.
So where does he fit in?
Answer: he doesn't. Unless someone pickup Desharnais.
What about the Torts connection in Vancouver ? Toronto maybe ?
Vancouver doesn't have any cap space and they only have around $48,000 left to spend, assuming they don't buyout Luongo and Ballard. So they need to dump salary before they can think of signing anyone. Plus we saw what happened to Brad Richards after signing with the Rangers just because of his past with Tortorella. So that's not always a good thing because you might like the coach.
