Lecavalier bought out

33 posts in this topic

 and he owes it all to Lecavalier. He's the one who got him a training camp invite as an undrafted player in Tampa. At some point they were both saying that they wanted to play their whole career together. It must be a really really though moment for them now.

 

which brings me back to a point i made awhile ago. And obviously its easy for me to say being just a regular guy but obviously when you can get a top of the line contract and long term. Personally i'd sign somewhere where i want to be and sign to a modest cap hit. Its still a lottttt of money but then we saw the stress and the trouble you get into if you don't live up to it. Fans turns against you. youre always stressed of being bought out or before to be sent in the AHL etc etc... again its easy for me to say but still.

 

You are right in that he was undrafted, but he got his start with the Flames.

yeah i know i should have been more clear. "to the point and where he is now and raised his family and all" is because Lecavalier got him his invite after Calgary dropped him. God knows if he would have played again in the NHL after that. Its a great story

It's a shame his contract was so long and bloated....he still puts up pretty good numbers, 32 points in 39 this season(?).  I would call that a damn productive 3rd or 2nd line center.  I'm jumping on the "Dick move, Tampa." train.

Unless you are planning on getting Marty St. Louis to play along side him in NJ, Vinny is pretty worthless and a cap killer.
