Flyers Trying To Move Vinny Lecavalier

from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall told CSNPhilly.com that he did not submit a buyout offer to embattled forward Vinny Lecavalier, via his agent, Kent Hughes.

Hughes did not return calls for comment. Yet he has stated in the past his client has no intention of retiring. Why would he?

The 35-year-old forward had three years left on his deal with a $4.5 million salary cap hit.

Just as last summer, the Flyers will continue to attempt moving the center-turned-winger in a trade this offseason. The Flyers had two near-deals going last June at the draft. One with Florida and one with Nashville. Both fell through.

Lecavalier is due a $2 million signing bonus on July 1. Hextall has to find a trade partner on a deal that goes into effect after July 1 during next week’s NHL draft in Sunrise, Fla.

Hextall has made it rather clear in several interviews since the end of the regular season that Lecavalier will not return because, in his words, “it hasn’t worked for him and it hasn’t worked for us.”

I wanted him in Detroit after his buyout. Glad that didn’t happen, but I guess Weiss is the same thing.
