VINCENT LECAVALIER RUMORS

Can Hakstol get production out of Lecavalier, MacDonald, Umberger?

In the 2014-15 season, the Flyers missed the playoffs primarily due to inconsistent play. But it was the inconsistencies of three players that were magnified, and for good reason. Combined, Vincent Lecavalier, R.J. Umberger and Andrew MacDonald make $14.1 million. Last season, they played in a combined 182 games, scoring 19 goals and adding 28 assists. Umberger was a minus-9....

Flyers plan on entering the year with Vincent Lecavalier

Vincent Lecavalier’s time with the Philadelphia Flyers has been a disaster. The 35-year-old regularly spent time down on the Flyers’ fourth line last season and posted just 20 points in 57 games. That’s a big problem considering he carries a $4.5 annual cap hit and was paid a salary of $6 million in 2014-15. The Flyers have made it extremely clear they want to trade away Lecavalier...

Vincent Lecavalier thinks he needs a better opportunity

Vincent Lecavalier’s time with the Philadelphia Flyers has been beyond disappointing. Signed to a five-year, $22.5 million contract prior to the 2013-14 season, it was clear that Lecavalier would be held to some high expectations. The hope was that he’d benefit from new scenery after having his contract bought out by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2013. Things haven’t gone according...

Report: Flyers’ Vincent Lecavalier Is On NHL Trade Market
