If you're a Tampa Bay Lightning diehard and you're currently house-hunting, here's a deal for you: Vinny Lecavalier's Davis Islands estate went on the market Monday.

But you might want to check under the sofa cushions twice for this one: You're going to need about $4.5 million to buy it.

As a bonus, you get to be Derek Jeter's neighbor. The retired Yankee great lives three doors down.

As an even bigger bonus, listing agent Allan Mezrah says, Lecavalier — who shipped out to the Philadelphia Flyers in 2013 after 14 years with the Bolts — might throw in some memorabilia from the 2004 Stanley Cup season.

"He does have a game room full of paraphernalia," says Mezrah, who works for real estate broker Toni Everett Co. Mezrah is a longtime friend of Lecavalier's who met the hockey star through mutual pal Brad Richards, another Lightning fave. "It could be worked out. He told me everything is negotiable."

Of course, there are a few other amenities in the 7,636-square-foot mansion, a Mediterranean-style home made in 2005 by Don Hughes, who built a lot of the leviathans on Davis Islands.

There's a climate-controlled wine room, a workout room, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms. There's a pool and a spa. Lecavalier — who no longer lives there and instead splits his time between Philadelphia and Montreal — is throwing in some furniture, too.

For those romantic evenings, there's a balcony that overlooks both Bayshore Boulevard and the majestic bay itself.

Sure, the property taxes are going to run you about $13,000 a year. But hey, don't forget about that game room: "There's a lot of good stuff from the Cup in that game room," Mezrah says.
