Yeah it was.

Kind of ironic that it was Yelle he beat with that. Yelle did almost the exact same thing to set up a goal earlier this season.

That was a great display of the puck behind the net by Vinnie and it led to a Tampa Bay goal... It was a great 360 move by Vinnie...

The funny thing was when he tried it on Yelle again, nice try Vinny. The first time was nice but when you try it again, especially in the same game, it loses some of its shock value. I could do it eventually after trying it as much as he does.

No need to be dismissive. That move was awesome. If I did it once in a game, I'd definitely want to try it again ASAP.

Dont try and take away from it... he did it twice, big deal. He alone was the catalyst and reason why the flames were smoked last night. Great game by vinny... where was calgary

LOL...I thought Brad Richards was a lot more effective than Lecavalier, but hey to each his own.

The third period seems to have clouded everyone's memory...because for 42 minutes that was a pretty even game. Once that second goal went in, Calgary kind of fell apart.

Lecavalier was forechecking, hitting fairly hard, seeing the ice well, making crisp passes and creating amazing chances as we saw... richards played well, but i dont think he played as well overall. I'm not just looking at the scoreboard, if thats what your basing it on

Why ?? Opposing players will look for that which is why it did not work the second time.

Yup. That's pretty typical of playoff hockey. 90% of the games are like that.

I watched the game and thought Richards was better too.

It's our opinion. Nobody is right here.

Well... yelle is a much better defensive player the whoever got burned the first time. Vinny had alot less room behind the net with yelle and the pass off the net wasn't as hard, not to mention yelle was closer to the net leading to the puck hitting his legs. Who knows how much of yelles defensive play there was fluke or what...

Could that be cause your both from PEI

I watched it and was enthralled *sp* with how lecavalier showed up last night... he played an amazing overall game, which richards did not. I didn't see richards throwing his weight around very much. Vinny was all over the place... he played one of the best games of his playoff career last night. imho.

It WAS Yelle that got burned the first time...lol. As I mentioned above, I laughed when it happened because Yelle did the exact same thing a few weeks ago and it resulted in a goal for the Flames.

BTW....I didn't look at the scoreboard to decide that I thought Richards was the better player. I thought Lecavalier was a bit out of control. He certainly had a good game too.

out of control in what sense???

Usually when players are allowed to skate at ease, hit as they please and just overall feed off the energy of the game they do better. Vinny was clearly in control... he had an allstar performance and that can't be taken away from him.

Richards throwing his weight around ?? You'll never see that, sorry.

Of course Vinny was more physical, his size says he should be. Also, I'm a Flames fan so I couldn't give a rats @$$ about Richards being from PEI. Not now anyway.

Lecavalier needs something or someone else to motivate him, that's why I don't like him very much yet. An NHL player IMO should be able to get themselves fired up. Lecavalier needed a waxing in Game # 1 and Wayne Gretzky in attendance for him to play like this. He also did not respond in the playoffs until they played Montreal (his home). I think Lecavalier will be one of the greatest to play in the future but he needs to be more consistent and more self-motivated.

That is why Gretzky left him off team Canada. When Lecavalier gets the consistency of a Brad Richards, look out NHL.

t'was a joke... get a sense of humor.

Everyone needs motivation... and not everyone is motivated game in game out. Vinny didn't do that poorly in the 1st round he just didn't cash in on the points.. doesn't mean he played poorly. And i highly doubt he gave a flying **** that gretzky ws in attendance, he's got bigger issues like winning a game. Vinnys only problem is his consistency with the scoreboard... everything else is BS. He will ownthe game sooner than later.

Come on. Lecavalier is known league wide as being one of the most inconsistent players in the NHL. Don't talk like I'm making this stuff up. I gave him his props by saying he has the potential to be great, what more do you want ??

90% of star NHL players are more consistent than Lecavalier.

Inconsistency with the scoreboard ?? :lol I have to remember that one. That must have been the Flames problem last night.

Key word... star players. Lecavalier hasn't come into his own yet. This is his second great season after feuding with his coach. He's still hella young and has to work on rounding out his game for consistency.

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...id%5B%5D=26809

Not that bad... Points wise, his consistency does't seem like it should be that major of an issue. Would appear to me that he's rounding out his game to more of a PF

Its actually his third great season. 02-03, 03-04 and what I consider his best season so far, 99-00 when he had 67 points on a terrible team as a 19 year old. He was most dominant that year, but his best effort season and biggest point total, hence most consistent season was 02-03. I agree his consistency is that big of a deal his only really bad year was all the fueding and ***** that went on.
