"But at the same time, Iím not going to the rink pissed off every day. I mean, I'm not playing, there's nothing else you need to say," he told LeBrun. "The only thing I can control is just how hard I practice and how ready I am for when either I come back into the lineup or if something happens with a trade or something like that."
Lecavalier believed he can step up and fill a need for another team, if given the chance.
The Flyers have been engaged in trade talks with other teams, and they have picked up steam lately, but it's unclear if anything is imminent.
Lecavalier has two-years on his contract, which comes with a $4.5 million salary cap hit.
LeBrun reports that Lecavalier's agent, Kent Hughes, could be assisting in facilitating a trade by telling teams if this season doesn't work out, they can work on terminating his contract.
It's also possible that the Flyers and Lecavalier agree to terminate his contract, and he signs a smaller contract with another team as a free agent.
