The Makings Of A Superstar

from the St. Peterburg Times,
He doesn't look any different. Same hair. Same face. Same broad shoulders and thick legs. He hasn't gotten any taller or more handsome. He still talks about himself the same - long silences, humble shrugs, a smile that's awkward, not arrogant. Yet there's a feeling that Lighting center Vinny Lecavalier has changed. Maybe the word is transformed. Or evolved. Yes, that's it. Evolved. That the kid who struggled to kick-start his career, that the kid who felt the undue pressure of being called the "Michael Jordan of hockey" before he even played a game, that the rebel who played the oil to coach John Tortorella's water is stepping up to a higher plain. Superstar.
