E Street Band Posted January 16, 2015 Share Posted January 16, 2015 I can see Vrbata becoming available IF and only IF the Canucks fall quickly out of the playoff picture this year similar to last year. He's 33 years old, a non rental player for an acquiring team, a proven goal scorer and not in the long term plans of the canucks. A great off season signing because it pleased the vancouver market and it only cost us ownership money. If he can continue to score he'd surely secure a first if not second round pick come trade deadline and that is great value for a one year free agent signing as he can play out his second year with his new team. He won't cost a new team much money for cap purposes either. Also by eliminating a WRer, now Kassian steps into a lineup in need of a RW to show us what he can really do with some good ice time. I like Vrbata but if the canucks slide then I bet he'll be on his way and the canucks will do well with their return. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
