Lightning Not Looking To Buyout Lecavalier

Posted By Sports Talk Florida Rumors On May 31, 2013 @ 10:56 AM In News and Rumors,NHL | No Comments

Tampa Bay Lightning Vincent Lecavalier (annual cap hit of $7.727 million ending in July 2020) may be overpaid, but there’s little indication the club intends to buy him out.

The Lightning have a little more than $3.3 million in projected cap space and 17 players under contract.

While Lecavalier appears a logical buyout candidate, the Lightning would get an additional $3.6 million in cap relief if Mattias Ohlund remains on the long-term injured reserve next season. They could also shed salary via trades, though such moves could weaken their depth.
