Kukla's Korner Hockey

from John Romano of the St. Petersburg Times,
...here we are, 50 games into a season, and this is a Lecavalier we barely know. The player who led the entire NHL in goals less than three years ago is now third on his own team. A player who once scored 52 goals in a season is now on pace for 21.
He has gone from being the face of a franchise to being another face in the crowd. When his name comes up in trade rumors, no one around here is screaming that Lightning ownership is out of its mind.
So how did it get to this point, Vinny?
And, furthermore, what are you going to do about it?
Everyone around the Lightning seems to be waiting for Lecavalier to break out. For that game when he skates onto the ice and, once again, looks as if he owns it. For the moment when he realizes, at age 29, he is frittering away one of the prime years of his career.
