Wouldnt mind him on Dallas at all, and him playing with Nichuskin would be pretty interesting. Also they have nice jerseys and may have to get one if he choses there. Better then detroit or montreal would hate to see him in our division

Not saying that our jersey rebrands were awful by any means, but I really wish ours had turned out as well as Dallas' had.

Further to @aaronward_nhl report on Lecavalier, I have also been told by a Stars source, Lecavalier has eliminated Dallas from contention.

Red Wings have been told they are not in the Vinny Lecavalier bidding war. Sounds like he's close to deciding.

It's not the best case but it's better than Montreal/Toronto/Boston. I do like that once again Lecavalier has declined to go to Montreal.

At least he's not playing in the same division as TBL.

Wow. “@tpanotchCSN: Source says 5 year $23.5 mill for Lecavalier as a Flyer. checking on that”
Good for Lecavalier. I would be nervous with a 5 year deal if I were a Flyer fan though.

Good for him, truly the end of the Lecavalier era it seems.

5 years is too much.

and we know all about his injuries. 60 games a year for 5 years (if that)?

Not sure what to think about this if true.

Part of me wants to see a Iggy to Boston situation with him going elsewhere just for the LOLs

Very weird he is going to retire in Philly. Lecavalier just won't look right in that jersey.

And you know he had to get a NMC/NTC.

I will miss him but I'm glad his declining play and contract aren't our problem anymore.

I don't quite understand why he chose Philly. Quite the media circus there and Holmgren is about as trigger happy of a GM as it gets.

Not to mention, Philly aren't exactly close to being a contender either unless Mason magically regains his 08-09 form.

There's a full No-Move Clause in Lecavalier's deal
There it is. Flyers giving an injury prone player a long term deal with a NMC.

New colours, new number (#4 is retired in Philadelphia), this doesn't feel right at all

Would you rather he play in Boston, Toronto, Detroit, or Montreal where we would constantly have to play against him?

I can't root for Phili. I'm sorry Vinny, I can't do it. If you had picked anywhere but there it would be a different story...not Phili.

Agreed, wish he could've gone to a more respectable team.

Still going to be checking out Philly games though, that offense looks like it'll be exciting.

I would say if it only takes ONE player for them to contend, then that would mean they ARE close.
