I do believe that it's an important signing for the Moose who seem to be struggling this year. Our higher end prospects will develop much better with a guy like Volpatti in the lineup.
I wouldn't be so sure. It looks like his contract is a 2 year, one way deal that pays him $500k per season ($100k signing bonus + $400 salary) whether he plays in Manitoba or Vancouver.

I don't think Gillis does a deal like this unless he's confidant Volpatti can play in Vancouver.
