That Umberger kid has to be thinking...man I better be careful of what I wish for in the future.

He asks to be traded and then is dealt to a team that doesn't offer him anything even close to what Vancouver offered, let alone what he really wants.

The only reason I'd consider signing this kid is so that I could deal him at the draft. However, there are no guarantees that at, $1.13 million, there are going to be any takers...especially cash-strapped teams that might have a good first rounder (Pitts, Columbus, Florida etc. I'd almost be worried that I'd get stuck with this ******* and that within a year he'd be demanding to play for the NHL squad or not at all.
