from the Tampa Tribune:
“There’s no doubt Lecavalier is a star in this league and he’s considered one of the elite players,” said Cliff Fletcher, the Coyotes’ VP of hockey operations and a former Tampa Bay executive. “I love his competitiveness. He’s a winner who doesn’t play to end up second best.”
After averaging 26 goals in his first seven pro seasons, Lecavalier is now determined to display the all-around skills that made him the obvious first overall pick in the 1998 draft.
He may not quite be Jordanesque, but he is close enough.
“We think Vinny’s been the best player in the league this year,” Lightning captain Tim Taylor said. “Now he wants to do it every night. He wins faceoffs, he protects his teammates, his preparation is better … all the little things.”
