Lecavalier under contract until 2020

Vinny Lecavalier has just signed a contract extension to keep him in Tampa Bay through 2020, and most likely the end of his career. While the rate of $7.72 million a season is a bit high, it isn't unreasonable and it appears clear that Lacavalier wants to stay with the organization for some time.

Despite this huge contract, the Lightning have actually been more fiscally responsible, and balanced this season. Tampa Bay still has Martin St. Louis on the team, but have traded away Brad Richards and the overpaid Dan Boyle and are actually in a better position because of it.
