NHL: Philadelphia Flyers To Sign Vincent LeCavalier for 5 Years, $22.5M

Jul 2 2013, 6:37pm CDT | by

Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier has reportedly agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Flyers for a five-year contract worth $22.5 million.

Vincent Lecavalier has reportedly agreed to sign with the Philadelphia Flyers. 

Yahoo! Sports' Greg Wyshynski says the deal is for five years and $22.5 million. Lecavalier would be the second-highest paid forward on the Flyers roster behind Scott Hartnell

Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux couldn't be more pleased with their latest acquisition. 

"Very excited, he's going to bring a lot to our team."

Lecavalier tested the market last week after his former team, the Tampa Bay Lightning, used one of its two compliance buyouts to formally end their relationship. The buyout eliminated his $7.727 million salary cap hit through the 2019-20 season. 

Him joining the Flyers puts the team over the salary cap (a hit of $4.5 million) even after Philadelphia used buyouts of its own on Danny Briere and Ilya Bryzgalov, per the Sporting News Sean Gentille. 

Sports Illustrated reports almost a dozen teams interviewed him, including the Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars and Calgary Flames

Wyshynski maintains Lecavalier utlimately chose Philadelphia because it came close to offering him the $5 million per season he was seeking and he also gets to play in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers, on the other hand, wanted a second line center with size and veteran leadership. It turned out to be a good deal for both sides. 

The 33-year-old Lecavalier played his first 14 seasons with the Lightning. He has scored 383 goals and dished out 491 assists for a total of 874 career points, per ESPN stats.

Problems on Defense Create Dilemma for Philadelphia Flyers

Oct 23 2014 12:41am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

One thing has become abundantly clear for the Philadelphia Flyers after their first seven games of the 2014-15 NHL season: the team’s defense just isn’t good enough as it is presently constituted for this team to be a true Stanley Cup contender. This creates a difficult dilemma for general manager Ron Hextall and the rest of the team’s management. The numbers are fairly straightforward, even though we are still early in the season. Throu ...

Ramsay could have the tools to fix young Oilers

Sep 29 2014 8:49pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

EDMONTON — The Edmonton Oilers have the horses up front. The problem is, they’re all thoroughbreds, no Clydesdales. They need to learn how to work as a team, or the team won’t work. That would make assistant coach Craig Ramsay Edmonton’s Horse Whisperer, arriving here having taken on a few projects that were very similar to this during a coaching career that began in 1986 — before all but five of these current Oilers were born.
