Vincent Lecavalier is glad to see that Tampa Bay owner Jeff Vinik will take part in a CBA negotiation process on Tuesday with a select group of locked-out players.
"I'm happy he's going," said Lecavalier Sunday. "He's a guy who will listen and talk and have a conversation and see where things go. A guy like Mr. Vinik who listens well, I think it's going to help the process." Vinik will join Boston's Jeremy Jacobs, Pittsburgh's Ron Burkle, Calgary's Murray Edwards, Winnipeg's Mark Chipman and Toronto's Larry Tanenbaum at the meeting.
