Preds trying to acquire Lecavalier

The Nashville Predators are hoping to acquire center Vincent Lecavalier from the Philadelphia Flyers, but the team is not interested in paying his $2 million bonus.

Lecavalier has a $2 million bonus that is to be paid out July 1. It's believed the Predators are willing to take on the rest of his contract once that bonus has been paid out by Philly.

Lecavalier is entering the second-year of a five-year, $22.5 million contract.

He will earn $6 million next season, $4.5 million in 2015-16, and $3 million in each of the last two years of his contract.

The Predators are looking for a top-line center to play alongside left wing James Neal, whom they acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday.

Predators GM David Poile almost acquired Jason Spezza from the Ottawa Senators, but the veteran center refuse to waive his no-trade clause for Nashville.

Lecavalier, 34, registered 20 goals and 17 assists for 37 points in 69 games with the Flyers this past season.
