I'd take him for the right price.  He's still a good player, although not nearly worth that contract.

Would be pretty great having him and Zajac as a 1-2 punch.  Permanently switch Henrique to the wing, plug Josefson as your 3C, and bam..

I've got a question about this..

 

So his annual salary is about 7.7m, which he will get paid no matter what.  This seems to mean that he can sign anywhere he wants at any cap hit and still get paid the same amount of money.  Granted, my money is on him going to Montreal, but what is stopping him from signing in a place like Pittsburgh for the league minimum just to squeeze into their cap, with TBL picking up the rest of the check.

Nothing at all.  If he wants to pull a Lebron and play for a championship, he can sign for cheap with a team like Pittsburgh or Chicago.  

I hope he doesn't, but I don't think there's a rule stating he can't do that.

as I understand it the team now owes him 32.67 milion spread over 14 years, which is about 2.2 million per year.

 

He's now a UFA, so he is free to sign with anybody (save for Tampa), for any amount over the league minimum, for any term.

I think we'll be seeing the end of an era in Pittsburgh. Swept by the Bruins? Shaky goaltending? Their cap will be hard to squeeze players in? We always just assume that's where UFA/trade bait players want to go, but I can't help but think those feelings are changing.

 

We're seeing teams built like Pittsburgh and New York not winning Cups. Teams built like Boston, L.A., Chicago (and I'll throw Detroit in there still too based on their style) are.

Welcome Alex Barkov to Tampa, I guess.

 

I have always been a big fan of Lecavalier, so I'd like to see him in a Devils jersey, too. Not sure if he'd fit on the team right now, but I'd be happy with it for the right price. He'd be especially helpful if Clarkson is too expensive.

 

But honestly, I see him signing with Montreal if they'll pay him enough.

they already have galchenyuk, desharnais and plekanec as a top 3 center... not sure which one of them would bump halpern off the 4th line.

I always loved Lecavalier but hes got a lot of miles and injuries to his name. hes 33 but athletically like 36 or 37. right price, of course id love him here, but someone will overvalue him.

good news is that mayyyyybe the leafs will decide to overspend on him instead of Clarkson. Like i said i really think that for Clarkson its either NJ or Toronto so if they are out we could get him at a fair price "maybe"

Jeez, I know his contract is bad but that's a lot of money to pay what is still a really good player to just go away for no return.

He was expendible in Tampa because Stamkos now receives the rewards for playing on a line with Martin St. Louis.

 

Levaviler was never worth the $ they paid for him.   I would take him for the same as Zubrus: $3m not a penny more.

He's only like 33 so I guess, but it would be nice not to be so geriatric.

I know this isn't a shocking move but it still feels weird to think of him not in the Lightning uniform. I'd love to see him in NJ but I doubt it happens. Always been a fan of his.
