So, it looks like Lightning fans, but more specifically Vinny Lecavalier Fans, can breathe a sigh of relief. GM Brian Lawton recently used these terms in describing the possibilities of the organization trading its star center,
But “never” doesn’t stand for everyone. The possibility of veteran players getting shipped off to try and build up for next year is a very real option. Vets such as Gary Roberts, who himself mentioned that he wouldn’t mind another shot at the cup with the Flames, or Mark Recchi, who has played more like a young man than a very very very old man, are players who could be taking off.
There is one…well I guess technically he is a player… a player who will be an Unrestricted Free Agent that I wish someone would take right now, Mr. Marek Malik. PLEASE PLEASE, someone take him, just don’t watch any of his game footage from this season.
We have a few days left to see how this all plays out. We can only hope that what Lawton says is true and that Vinny is staying, and that someone takes Malik!
