Vincent Lecavalier will spend Wednesday's game in the press box.
At this point Lecavalier being scratched is nothing new. What makes it a little worse this time though is the fact that Sam Gagner (upper body) has joined R.J. Umberger (lower body) on the sidelines. It seems Lecavalier has fallen so low that the Flyers would rather use players that were serving in the AHL over him. Nov 25 - 12:33 PM

Vincent Lecavalier is a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The 35-year-old has just one assist in seven games this season. His third year as a Flyer is as bad as the first two. Evgeny Medvedev will also watch the game from the press box.

Vincent Lecavalier was not on a regular line in practice Friday and will likely be scratched for Saturday's game.

Lecavalier will likely be joined by Evgeny Medvedev in the press box. Lecavalier has been a healthy scratch in 12 of the Flyers first 19 games and has only one assist this season. He has no fantasy value.
Nov 21 - 8:29 AM

Vincent Lecavalier will likely watch Saturday's game from the press box.

The center had a bad giveaway on Thursday and that does not bode well for getting into the lineup Saturday. "it’s a tough play to give up. As a team, we’re trying to make things happen. We’re trying to squeeze one extra play in there and those are things we can’t do. That ended up as a rebound goal against. That could have been pretty challenging for the team but the group handled it well ... we had the right response." coach Dave Hakstol said. Look for Sam Gagner to draw back into the lineup.
Nov 7 - 9:41 AM

Vincent Lecavalier will play Thursday night after all.

It initially looked like Lecavalier would be a healthy scratch because Sean Couturier (concussion) is returning, but that's not the case. Lecavalier will instead serve as a right winger on a line with Brayden Schenn and R.J. Umberger.
Nov 5 - 2:47 PM

Vincent Lecavalier is projected to be a healthy scratch Thursday night.

Sean Couturier (concussion) should return, so that's why Lecavalier is expected to head back to the press box. Lecavalier has averaged 9:59 minutes in four games this season.
Nov 5 - 1:51 PM

Vincent Lecavalier registered an assist in his season debut on Thursday.

While that might seem encouraging, we don't recommend picking up Lecavalier in standard leagues. The reason is simple: Lecavalier received just 7:16 minutes of ice time Thursday night, which was by far the worst among the Flyers players. Philadelphia doesn't seem to have any intention of using him much this season and unless that changes, he can't do much from a fantasy perspective.
Oct 30 - 11:07 AM

When Vincent Lecavalier plays on Thursday, it will likely be on a line with Chris VandeVelde and Ryan White.

Just in case you needed further evidence that Lecavalier finally drawing into the Flyers lineup isn't likely to lead to him having any fantasy value. He's filling in for Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, who is expected to miss at least two weeks with a lower-body injury.
Oct 28 - 3:10 PM

Vincent Lecavalier will draw into the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.

Lecavalier will serve as a left winger rather than his natural position of center. Still, at least he'll play, which is something he hasn't done yet this season. Needless to say, for as good as he once was, he's not worth owning in fantasy leagues at this time.
Oct 28 - 1:14 PM

Tuesday will mark eight straight games in which Vincent Lecavalier is a healthy scratch.

That's right, Lecavalier still hasn't seen any ice time this season. Which should all but sink any potential value he has, in real life and in fantasy. Brandon Manning will also be scratched.
Oct 27 - 8:32 PM

Vincent Lecavalier and Luke Schenn will be scratched for Saturday's tilt with the Rangers.

It's always tough to be scratched, but even more so in a rivalry game. Neither player seems to have any value to the Flyers with just three games played between them - all by Schenn.
Oct 24 - 6:35 PM

Vincent Lecavalier still hasn't made his season debut.

That's not expected to change on Tuesday against Dallas. Lecavalier comes with a $4.5 million annual cap hit through 2017-18 and it seems unlikely that Philadelphia will ever get its money's worth.
Oct 20 - 9:16 AM

Vincent Lecavalier and Luke Schenn will be healthy scratches against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The former Lightning pivot has yet to make his 2015-16 debut, sitting out all three of the Flyers first games. Schenn drew into the lineup in the first two games of the season, but will sit for his second straight contest.
Oct 14 - 7:04 PM

It looks like Vinny Lecavalier, Sam Gagner, and Radko Gudas will be the scratches again tonight for the Flyers.

The trio were in the press box for the Flyers season opener on Thursday. If Gudas ever gets back into the lineup, he might be worth an add in leagues that give points for penalty minutes.
Oct 10 - 7:22 PM

Vincent Lecavalier will spend Thursday's opener in the press box.

To make matters worse for Lecavalier, the game is against his old team, the Tampa Bay Lightning. "The toughest thing is not physically being out there and playing with the puck, it's mentally," Lecavalier said. "It can't creep up on you, I still have that confidence that if I'm put in a situation, I know I can still play the game. I believe in myself, and that's all that matters honestly. It is hard. I want to play." Don't count on him having any fantasy value in standard leagues this season. It seems like we're in for a repeat of last season where his playing time will be severely limited.
