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.

Ranking the 5 Most Important Players on the Philadelphia Flyers Roster

Aug 26 2014 2:54pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Every player on an NHL roster is important. And yet, the fact remains some are just truthfully more important than others. Craig Adams is an important piece of the Pittsburgh Penguins, but would anyone argue he's more important than Sidney Crosby? Or how about Bryan Bickell versus Jonathan Toews in Chicago? The stark reality is that certain players are just inherently more valuable than others. The same is true with the Philadelp ...
