Habs acknowledge ‘pretty high’ interest in Lecavalier

It seems as if Vincent Lecavalier’s name has been connected to the Montreal Canadiens for about as long as many people felt like he was making too much money. That association sprouted to mind following Lecavalier’s buyout, but rumor generators can feel empowered, as Habs GM Marc Bergevin admitted to NHL.com that the team is eyeing him.

The prankster-turned-exec provided an interesting take on the 1-to-10 scale.

“From 1 to 10?” Bergevin said when asked to describe the Canadiens’ interest in Lecavalier. “Pretty high.”

Someone asked if that “meant an eight,” prompting Bergevin to repond, “Safe to say. At least.”

Bergevin touted the 33-year-old’s size above all else.

Naturally, it all comes down to the price being right, but many people would be happy if Lecavalier ended up in Montreal.

Of course, he’d have to learn how to respect (or at least coexist with) P.K. Subban, though.
