Jones: Lightning should trade Lecavalier
The rumor typically begins up north, usually in Montreal, then makes its way to Toronto.
Someone floats the idea in a newspaper. Then a radio show picks it up, and pretty soon it’s all over the Internet. The rumor always includes these three words:
“Vinny” and “Lecavalier” and “trade.”
When the Lightning stumbles or Lecavalier struggles, it isn’t long before someone at least wonders if Lecavalier should be traded.
Today I’ll play the part of “someone.”
I’ll even go a step further.
It’s not only time to think about trading Lecavalier.
It’s time to do it.
Shop him around, find interested takers, ask for the world, swallow hard and pull the trigger on the best deal you can get.
