All kidding aside IMO kudos are obviously in order for Lecavalier's stellar contribution to the Lightning in his long tenure here and his multi-million-dollar commitment to curing children's cancer. Also he deserves recognition for scoring one of the Bolts' most intensely amazing, crucial goals ever--not the diving one-hander against the Atlanta Nobodies, but the impossible between-the-skates deflection over Jose Theodore's shoulder during the 04 MTL series that forced OT with 9 seconds left if memory serves--and for performing what can certainly be called the greatest assist in the history of the Lightning, if not one of hockey's all-time best. That bit of wizardry embodied unbridled creativity, incredible finesse and physical prowess, tireless tenacity and a relentless work ethic we all would like to remember him for. He got just absolutely annihilated with a bone-crushing hit as he delivered that puck, too...and in so doing earned the reward of those willing to pay the price.
Here's hoping his standing O tonight is an extremely long and noisy one

Not that it would happen, but interesting question. I think it's a year.
Would be cool to see Vinny retire as a bolt, even if it's on an expiring contract at the end of the last year of his deal (I.E. Tampa trades a moldy hoagie roll to philly for the rights to Vinny in June 2018 )
No one wants to retire in South Jersey.
