Flyers coach Craig Berube has a simple reason for why he hasn't given Vincent Lecavalier a lot of playing time this season.
"He just hasn't produced and he gets power-play time, too," Berube said. "He hasn't produced." Lecavalier has just seven goals and 18 points in 51 contests this season. At the same time he's been limited to 12:47 minutes per contest, so the fact that his production is down isn't surprising. At any rate, Lecavalier needs a change of scenery, but we doubt he'll get one given his cap hit and the fact that he won't be an unrestricted free agent until 2018. Mar 27 - 6:01 PM

Look for Vincent Lecavalier to play on Saturday.

Lecavalier has routinely been listed as a healthy scratch this season, but he might play in the remainder of the Flyers' games. That's because Wayne Simmonds (leg) is done for the season. Lecavalier has seven goals and 18 points in 51 contests.
Mar 27 - 11:35 AM

Vincent Lecavalier will stay in the press box on Wednesday.

It will be Lecavalier's third consecutive game as a healthy scratch. The Flyers would presumably love to trade Lecavalier over the summer and a change of scenery would likely do him some good. However, the Flyers probably won't find a taker for his contract, so short of a buyout, he appears to be stuck with them.

Vincent Lecavalier and Matt Read will be scratched against the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.

While Read continues to be with his wife Erin in Minnesota with their first child, a daughter, Roen Brittan, Lecavalier is mired in a 26-game goal drought. Another difficult season continues for the long-time veteran Lecavalier who has just seven goals and 18 points through 51 games this season.
Mar 19 - 8:04 PM

Vincent Lecavalier will be scratched for his third consecutive game on Sunday evening against the New Jersey Devils.

With just seven goals and 17 points through 46 games this season, the former Rocket Richard trophy winner simply doesn't have it any more in the fantasy world.
Mar 8 - 5:31 PM

Vincent Lecavalier will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against Boston.

Vincent Lecavalier had an assist in his return to the Flyers lineup Saturday.

The center has been a healthy scratch in the previous four games. He has seven goals and 17 points in 45 games and has a contract that should prove to be untradeable at the deadline as he is still owed $10.5 million over the next three years with a $4.5 million salary cap hit.
Mar 1 - 8:37 AM

Vincent Lecavalier will skate on the Flyers' fourth line on Saturday night against their rival Rangers.

Lecavalier will skate to the right of Chris VandeVelde and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, after sitting the past four games. Lecavalier is posting his second straight disappointing season with Philadelphia with just seven goals and 16 points in 44 games.

Vincent Lecavalier, Carlo Colaiacovo, and Luke Schenn will all be scratched against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

This will be Lecavalier and Schenn's fourth consecutive game in the stands, as their mates make a late playoff push. Colaiacovo meanwhile has just 15 games to his credit, albeit nine since Jan. 14th. Of the three, only Schenn has some fantasy value with a 163 hits and 67 blocks in just 47 games this season.

Do not be surprised if Vincent Lecavalier is a healthy scratch Saturday.

Lecavalier was replaced in the lineup by Zac Rinaldo who will see his first game action in 11 contests on Saturday, likely leaving Lecavalier as the odd-man out. Stay tuned as Lecavalier has only seven goals and 16 points in 44 games.
Feb 21 - 8:54 AM

Vinny Lecavalier notched two assists for the Flyers in their 3-2 loss to the Islanders on Thursday night.

Lecavalier had just two points in the 12 games prior to this one. He would be a great mid-season pickup for your fantasy playoff push if it were 2006. At the present though, the veteran has just 16 points in 38 games.
Feb 5 - 11:25 PM

Vincent Lecavalier potted a goal for the Flyers in their 5-2 loss to the Devils on Saturday night.

The days of Lecavalier as one of the premiere pass-first centers in the game are long gone, which is a shame because he was quite fun to watch in his prime. The 34-year-old does have points in three straight games, however, good for 12 on the season. Andrew MacDonald also scored and assisted in the loss. Wayne Simmonds had five penalty minutes a minus-one rating.
Jan 3 - 9:44 PM

Vincent Lecavalier assisted on Chris Vandevelde's goal Friday.

The assist gives Lecavalier five points in his last seven games as he had scored four times in the previous six contests. Lecavalier now has six goals and 11 points in 24 games. Use him at your own risk.
