Strong rumours have been floating around today suggesting that, despite talk to the contrary from Vinny Lecavalier and his agent, Bob Gainey is currently in talks with the Tampa Bay Lightning in an attempt to acquire the Quebec native. Names in the mix from the Canadiens side are Chris Higgins, Tomas Plekanec and prospect P.K. Subban along with at least one first round draft pick.
While I’m a big fan of Lecavalier and have no doubt that he would add a huge amount of skill to our top line, I cringe to think of P.K. Subban being mentioned. He’s an offensive defenseman like the NHL hasn’t seen in years and I think that he also will have a big impact on the Habs in years to come…luckily it’s a pleasant dilemma to have!
I’ll update the second I hear anything more firm one way or the other!
