Even with the Mike Fisher news, the Preds are better off without Lecavalier

Even with the Mike Fisher news, the Preds are better off without Lecavalier

The current Flyer could actually hurt the team more than help them. (Editor's Note: Majority of this article was written prior to the news that Mike Fisher exploded. It's been updated to reflect that debacle, but the general point remains the same.) The poor dead horse that is "Vincent Lecavalier to Nashville" is again being beaten mercilessly. It started up over the weekend when David Legwand signed in Ottawa, taking them out of the running for being a destination. Then the gears were put into overdrive yesterday thanks to Mr. Fisher's feeble foot. It seems like a good fit, given that he...

Thursday's Dump & Chase: The Waiting Game Continues

Now as July 1st shrinks in the rearview mirror, the potential for more moves becomes an agonizing test of patience. The Predators keep hinting they aren't done, either. What would be more torturous: If they stood pat after the Neal trade or prolonging the sliver of hope that something may happen? Follow @OntheForecheck Predators Jokinen deal comes with an asterisk - OTF This has the potential to be very, very pointless. The Vincent Lecavalier trade option to Nashville is still possible - BSH I think I've finally reached the acceptance stage, if only so we can quit hearing about...

The Vincent Lecavalier trade option to Nashville is still possible

Let us pray. Earlier on Wednesday, when the Predators signed Olli Jokinen, it seemed like the dream of a Vincent Lecavalier trade to Nashville was out the window. They got the extra forward they were looking for and were surely off the market, especially not for another center. Hell, we probably thought this possibility was over earlier in the week when a deal reportedly fell through between the two teams, basically because Nashville didn't want to take on Lecavalier's salary over the full four-year term that remains on the deal. But ... well, not so fast. This trade might happen...

Free Agent Frenzy

The Predators still have a lot of work to do. Stick around for news, analysis and reaction from all the days happenings. The most anticipated day of the year (for player's agents) is finally here. David Poile has been strangely aggressive trying to add pieces lately. He succeeded with James Neal, wiffed on Jason Spezza, and smartly turned down Vincent Lecavalier. Nashville needs a top-line center. A veteran defenseman to go on the third pairing wouldn't hurt, and some sort of winger **coughcoughRadimVrbatacoughcough** would be icing on the proverbial cake. Stick around with us to chat and...
