Count the Dallas Stars as one of the teams interested in Vincent Lecavalier, and apparently they’re in the running for the free agent.

Last week, the Tampa Bay Lightning bought out the remainder of Lecavalier’s 11-year, $85,000,000 contract.

He is now a free agent, and there is no shortage of teams looking to land the one-time 52-goal scorer.

According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, playing in the East is a factor for Lecavalier, however the Stars remain “in the mix” for the talented center.

The Montreal Canadiens and general manager Marc Bergevin have already made public their interest in Lecavalier.

As per a report in The Tennessean, Nashville Predators general manager David Poile has spoken with Lecavalier.

However, the indication from Poile is that Lecavalier wanted to stay on the East Coast.

“We’re going to follow it up again, because we think it could be a fit, but that’s what he and his people have said,” Poile told The Tennessean.
