The more I think about it, the more I love it. The cap hit won't be too high (god, it better be <5), and he is a player who can still be effective past 35 (unlike Briere).

Reasonable contract, I'm very much down with this.

Too many years or too much money, I'm not down with this.

@DarrenDreger just read from his text live on #TSNDrive ... He asked a Flyers source "Did you guys get Lecavailier?" Answer: "Yes" #Flyers

Appearently we got Vinny. Now watch how mad all the other teams fans that wanted the are going to be. Just look at the trade board.

Judging by reported numbers Lecavalier wants, #Flyers would need to clear more cap space first.


Why would we have to clear cap space first? We just removed like 10 million

He's big, can play physical and can hold on to the puck and make plays. Sounds like a pretty good fit if he can convert fine.

Hartnell-Giroux-Lecavalier
Simmonds-Schenn-Voracek (awesome line when it was together)
Gagne-Couts-Read
Talbot-Laughton-Rinaldo

Just a thought.

Sounds like #Flyers are frontrunners for Vincent #Lecavalier at least. @DarrenDreger has #Flyers source who texted him saying it's done.

I'm scared. Something tells me Homer offered him the most money.

@DarrenDreger
Hearing the Flyers are Lecavalier's choice. Working on confirmation.

Those lines are so good.

Coburn, Mez, Cousins and a 3rd.

I like Laughton too much.

If true, no. That's retired. 44 is firmly taken too.

It would be pretty exciting to be able to get Vinny here if we can get by the money part. To have 2 pretty high powered lines to go at teams would be sweet. Then have Cout's leading the 3rd shut down line would be cool too. Could we package a deal, perhaps with Hartnell including to possibly get Ryan? Now that lineup would be sick =)

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Schenn - Lecavalier - Simmonds
Gagne - Couturier - Read
Talbot - Laughton - Rinaldo

5 years 23.5M for a cap hit of 4.7M. Pretty reasonable cap hit for a guy of his ability.

Good contract for Homer. Didn't think I would say that at all.

It'll be weird to see him wear another # as well as another jersey. I'm a Flames fan but I love Vinny and I chear for the Flyers too. So I'm pretty happy.

He's still productive. He might not be the Vinny of the mid-2000's but he's still good player. His brutal contract overshadowed him the last few years in Tampa Bay.

He's under 35, though. He can retire with no issues.
