New Tampa Owner Must Deal With Lecavalier First

from Gary Shelton of the St. Petersburg Times,

Why has Lecavalier backslid? Who knows? One theory is that Lecavalier isn’t playing well because he doesn’t trust the current ownership. If so, that would be disappointing, because most competitors don’t get their fire from the guy in the owner’s box. But if I’m Vinik, I have a heart-to-heart with Lecavalier on the first day I own the team. I tell him I think he is capable of more.

Over time, Vinik has a lot of questions to answer. He has to decide what to do with his general manager, with his head coach, with his marketing plan, with his budget, with his blueprint.

First, there is Vinny.

For a new owner, that’s where hope begins.
