Could a Lecavalier trade alter balance of power in Southeast overnight?

Doubtful, considering the self-defeating wall Lightning management has erected, keeping them safely protected from sound business moves. Things could change, however...sooner or later they'll hit a home run. Shipping out Vinny could be a step in the right direction, dependent upon the return, of course. From the CBC via Spector's Hockey: -(Al) Strachan reports media consensus is that Vincent Lecavalier could be moved prior to July 1st, when his no-trade clause would kick in, and it appears Los Angeles could be the front-runner, citing how the Kings management quietly let it be known a couple of months ago they would pursue a big name player, and given their depth in young talent they could make "a hockey deal" which is something the Lightning would prefer. Spector continues: If Lecavalier is traded I believe the Kings would have the inside track as they can offer up a much better return to the Lightning in affordable young talent than the Montreal Canadiens. And the Kings do have talent. If a boatload of it came east, would the impact on the Panthers and rest of the Southeast be felt immediately? This has the potential to replicate - in spirit anyway - the Lindros for half-the-Nordiques roster back in the day. And overnight, the Nords were contenders. Could the Bolts catch Lightning in a bottle? (Wow that sucked.)
