Vinny Lecavalier all the rage in Canada



Vinny The Tampa Bay Lightning's Vinny Lecavalier apparently is the biggest sports story in Canada today.

As of 2 p.m., TSN, Canada's equivalent of ESPN, had Lecavalier as the lead story on its site, with no fewer than four stories and two videos devoted to speculation about whether the Lightning is shopping its captain and marquee attraction --and whether the Ile Bizard, Que., native will wind up with the Montreal Canadiens.

Here is a sampling:
