Posted By Joe Haggerty On January 15, 2009 @ 5:42 pm In General | No Comments

Tampa Bay Lightning [1] GM Brian Lawton met with the assembled hockey media in Florida today [2]to debunk the Vinny Lecavalier trade rumors, including pie-in-the-sky speculation that he might be sent to Boston for a bevy of young players.

“There’s been a lot of speculation floating around and it has all been completely unfounded,” said Lawton, who added that he received a grand total of zero phone calls from the Montreal media to confirm or deny potential trade talks with the Canadiens. “Vinny Lecavalier is not being shopped by the Tampa Bay Lightning…(We told him) he wasn’t being traded. He wasn’t being shopped around. He’s not being traded today, he’s not being traded tomorrow and he’s not going to be traded anytime soon.”
