    Vincent Lecavlier

    Is getting bought out.

    Anyone else think he'll end up in Van with Torts again?

    "Lecavalier still has seven years left on his Deal with a reported annual value of $7.73 million per year. By using the buy-out, the club wipes out the contract's value on their slaryt cap and must pay Lecavalier two-thirds of its existing value across twice the term of the contract."

    I think Yzerman takes a run at Horton now...

    I wouldn't mind seeing him here! A line with him, Soderberg and Paille would be a nice 3rd line with grit and skill. Yes, I think Paille should be a 3rd liner after his performance this season.

    I think he lost a couple of Chicklets Fred--The Turk

    The goal isn't for the Bruins to take a beating for the team, it's to cause the opponents to take a beating for theirs.

    I would if i were him.  This is the offseason we will see if Yzerman really is worth all the praise as a GM.  Lots of FA's out there.  Even more to come with more buyouts.  This offseason will be so fun to watch unfold.

    I would not mind him as a Bruin.  His skill would help and the supporting cast the B's have would help him.

    there is no room for a left handed center on this team. if he can play right wing i'm all for it.

    I think it would be good for hockey in general to have Vinny in Montreal.

    Re: Vinny w/ the Habs

    It really, really depends on money. Montreal is as I'm sure you've noticed not really a Cup contender, despite their #2 seeding. They had a great year compared to 2012, but there's work to be done. The core of the team is pretty young; they want to develop that core to become the type of contender that Boston is.

    They have some (not a ton, but some) cap space, but I doubt they use it to sign a 33 year old guy who isn't putting up superstar numbers unless they can do so reasonably. I know there will be pressure for them to do so because he's a local French-speaking player. But unless he is a financial fit, I don't think he'll end up with the Habs--I bet he gets more money elsewhere and ends up there.

    10 forwards and 7 D with over 7 mill in cap room. I would think 5 million for vinny would work fine.

    Given what Vinny has produced in the last few years, is 5M for him money well spent on a Habs team that looks to be a couple years away from truly contending? I'm not sure.

    you can't overestimate what a vet that has captained a stanley cup champion would bring to a team like the habs. He's also a big, physical, two way center that puts up points every year. Center isn't exactly a position of strength for the habs.

    He puts up points when healthy. He isn't getting younger. If Horton goes? Do we grab him for a wing spot?

    not a chance. if he was right handed, maybe there's like a 2% chance.

    That's true. They're thin in the middle, and they need guys who can take punishment. I sure wouldn't *mind* seeing him with the Habs. I'm just nervous that they'll overspend on him due to his stellar past and his heritage.

    If they can fit him and not mess up the rebuilding (which I have a lot of faith in) great. And I don't see this management team making bad moves to placate the fanbase. But I'm still a little nervous about the possibilities.

    both Bergevin and Lecavalier are hoping another team steps up and makes Vinny an offer the habs can't match....

    Bergevin better be prepared for the onslaught if Vinny isn't wearing the "bleu, blanc, rouge" come October....

    It doesn't seem so long ago the team owner was comparing him to Michael Jordan, a misguided analogy, at best.  And now bought out.
