from Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times,
Asked it he had anything to prove to Tampa Bay, he said no.
"It's not about proving anybody wrong," Lecavalier said. "I want to prove (the Flyers) right. (The Lightning) made a business decision. I don't have anything against them. They do everything the right way. The thing for me was to move on. That's all."
In 14 seasons and 1,037 games with the Lightning, Lecavalier, the No. 1 pick of the 1998 draft, had 383 goals (a team record), 491 assists and 874 points.
The four-time All-Star was captain from 1999-2001 and 2008-13. He was the first Tampa Bay player to score 50 goals (52 in 2006-07, when he won the Rocket Richard Trophy) and played on the 2004 Stanley Cup team.
"The memories I'll have for the rest of my life," he said. "It gives you a taste. You win one and now you want to win another one."
