from Mike Brophy of the Hockey News,
And with each passing day it becomes more evident GM Jay Feaster is going to have to trade one of the Big Three…
All three are decorated. St-Louis led the NHL in scoring and was named most valuable player in 2004; Richards won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP the same season and, a few months later, Lecavalier was the MVP of the World Cup. He won the Rocket Richard Trophy for leading the NHL in goals last season.
Making the prospect of a deal more complicated is the fact that of the three, only Lecavalier does not have a no-trade clause in his contract. For Feaster to trade Richards or St-Louis, he would need their permission.
Richards might be inclined to move to a team where he can play on the top line, but it’s hard to imagine St-Louis wanting to leave Lecavalier’s side – unless, of course, his new team was interested in signing him to a contract extension.
