Stu Cowan: Canadiens finally able to land Vincent Lecavalier

There were a couple of times when Vincent Lecavalier came close to playing for the Canadiens. This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below. In the summer of 2008, Lecavalier signed an 11-year, US$85-million contract extension with the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team that selected him with the No. 1 overall pick at the 1998 NHL Draft. There was a dispute between the two Lightning owners at the time, with Len Barrie wanting to keep Lecavalier and Oren Koules wanting to trade him before the new deal kicked in for the 2009-10 season.

Lightning Round: Montreal hires Vincent Lecavalier as a special advisor to hockey operations

The Montreal Canadiens continued the rebuilding of their management structure with two new appointments yesterday: the former Tampa Bay Lightning forward Vincent Lecavalier was hired as a special advisor to hockey operations, while Nick Bobrov will be Montreal’s new co-director of amateur scouting, sharing his duties with Martin Lapointe.

Canadiens Officialize Hiring Of Bobrov, Also Hire Vincent Lecavalier

Yesterday’s news of the imminent hiring of Nikolai Bobrov with the Montreal Canadiens has now been made official. However, Bobrov will get a higher role than expected as he has been named Co-Director of Amateur Scouting, possibly signalling the end of Martin Lapointe as head of scouting once the draft has come to pass. It is extremely rare to see the higher brass of scouting departments leave a team before a draft, hence why Trevor Timmins has possibly not been hired yet. Don’t be surprised if Bobrov eventually takes over the entire department once the draft has concluded.

Canadiens Confirm Interest in Hiring Vincent Lecavalier

After hiring Martin St. Louis as head coach, there were reports that surfaced this week the Montreal Canadiens were also interested in bringing another former member of the Tampa Bay Lightning into the Habs organization. Vincent Lecavalier was rumored to be on new GM Kent Hughes’ radar, some reports suggesting Lecavalier was being considered for the Assistant GM role.

Report: Canadiens to name Vincent Lecavalier assistant GM

The Montreal Canadiens are about as far away from the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning as a team can be. In their efforts to turn around a historically bad season and work their way back into relevance, it seems the club has decided to reunite the 2004 Stanley Cup-winning Bolts squad. After naming Martin St. Louis as interim head coach earlier Wednesday, the Habs are now expected to name his former teammate, Vincent Lecavalier, as assistant general manager, according to Montreal reporter Marc-Olivier Beaudoin.

Montreal Canadiens Linked To Vincent Lecavalier; Lecavalier Denies Rumors

8:50pm: It’s just like his playing days all over again. Despite a seemingly reliable report that Lecavalier would be joining the Canadiens, the man himself has denied the rumors. Lecavalier tells Simon Lorange of La Presse that the report of him accepting the Montreal Assistant GM job is erroneous and he is happy in Florida. While this could be temporary posturing by the former star player, it doesn’t appear that this is the case. Will the Lecavalier to Montreal rumors ever end?
