Just last week, Lecavalier was bought out by the Tampa Bay Lightning, but it didn’t take long for him to find a new home in Philly. He’ll be a solid replacement for the recently bought-out Danny Briere, but the choice is surprising nonetheless. With this signing, the Flyers are now $500k over their salary cap and still in desperate need of a starting goaltender. Looks like they still have some unloading to do before they’ll be ready for next season. See ya, Brayden Coburn.

ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun tweeted that the deal includes a full no-move clause, so Vinny can go ahead and get comfortable in Philly.
