Lecavalier In The Big Apple?

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

Vincent Lecavalier could be headed to Broadway and a reunion with John Tortorella, his coach from the 2004 Stanley Cup-champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

A league source said New York Rangers GM Glen Sather — who’s desperate to find an answer to his club’s season-long, goal-scoring struggles — reached out to Lightning counterpart Brian Lawton to spark trade talks.

A second league executive insisted Lecavalier, who had just 11 goals in 46 games this season entering last night’s action — is on the market.

While the centre would have to waive his no-movement clause to be reunited with Tortorella, the talk is the Rangers are willing to offer up a package to kick-start an offence that had scored 120 goals in 47 games.

That whisper is that package would be D Matt Gilroy, D Wade Redden and either C Brandon Dubinsky or RW Ryan Callahan.

continued plus additional rumors…
