Vinny Proposes Ten Year Deal

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post (reg. req.),
Slap Shots has learned that the franchise center, who's eligible to become the first elite 26-year-old unrestricted free agent in NHL history, has been offered a three-year, $20.5M deal by the defending Stanley Cup champions, who unaccountably allowed goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin to defect to Chicago without much of a fight. We're told that Lecavalier is not only considering that offer — which is $500,000, total, more than Thornton accepted from the Bruins — but has also pitched the concept of a 10-year deal to the Lightning, who are intrigued and listening.
