I'm a big fan of Higgins and Pleky but we have the depth to cover Higgins' loss on the wings and as good as Pleks is Vinny is a massive upgrade.

Too bad it's such a complete and utter pipe dream.
If Vancouver was willing to pay $10 million a season to Sundin and Crosby is worth (according to the deal he signed) $8.7 million a season, Vinny at $7.7 million is fair to me.

He's 28-29 now, and another 10 years would be fine by me. And he's certainly not Rick DiPietro!
