Lecavalier also has a NTC. He's happy in Tampa and doesn't want to be moved.

And do you really want his 7.7 bagillion dollar cap hit for the rest of eternity (I think it ends in 2020 or something).

No state income taxes, nice weather, and a great town to love in. Hard to argue with that.

Not to mention the best set of laws that protect your estates/assets, which would be a high consideration for multi-millionaire athletes...as well as Florida being the destination of choice for Quebecois snow birds (though retired Quebecois gravitate towards Hollywood, Florida along the Atlantic Ocean, otherwise known as Quebec City-sud).

If gillis would do the Lecavalier for Louie deal at least we would get a super star back.... hes still good and would look pretty crazy on a line with Kesler and Booth... what did Gillis say hes want a big playmaker, well here he is.... Little too much money, but who cares when u win the cup....

do the deal if they take Ballard too???

how about no !

I was thinking we should trade Luongo and get Gomez, I heard that guy is doing really well in Montreal!

I would trade Loungo for Lecavalier in a heartbeat. Maybe get them to through in something extra, for the cap difference.

Lecavalier is a playoff player. That is what the Canucks need. #%*& the regular season. We've won the Presidents trophy back to back. Now let's get some players who are build for the playoffs.

Lecavalier = playoff performer
Luongo = regular season performer

People need to stop looking at the $ signs. It's just a number, nothing more.

It's just money?

It's actually called "we will have a difficult time re-signing EDLER, BURROWS, TANEV, LAPIERRE, HIGGINS next year!"

All of these players arguably will get a raise, some will get hefty raise. I'm sure Gillis intends to keep all of those players (unless some of them were part of a significant trade). And this intention isn't considering what they are possibly going to earn for their next contract

1) Don't need another center
2) Don't need that contract
3) TB doesn't need a goalie anymore (yet)
