Lecavalier Frustrated

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,

“The frustration level is very high,” Lecavalier said Thursday. “It’s all about confidence. I see the puck coming, and I tense up.”

It is one thing that Lecavalier is on pace for 16 goals, his fewest since he had 13 in 1998-99 as a rookie. That he spoke so freely about a lack of confidence is extraordinary.

This is a former 50-goal scorer who from 2006-08 racked up 200 points and was considered one of the best in the world.

“Squeezing the stick,” he said. “Around the net, when you don’t have a lot of goals, your vision is not the same. I feel great everywhere on the ice but around the net. It doesn’t shut down, but for some reason, your vision gets smaller.”
