Vinny Lecavalier said he wants to finish his career with the Lightning.
"Definitely, yeah," he said. "I like Tampa and I want to be in Tampa for a long time."
The concept is not new. Lecavalier, who has one year left on his four-year, $27.4-million deal, said last season he was open to an extension, and agent Kent Hughes said last week his understanding is that the Lightning wants Lecavalier, 28, to be a lifer.
Lecavalier, with 92 goals the past two seasons combined, reiterated that, "I'm definitely interested in listening to what they have to say."
