Vrbata would not be enough for O'Neil. He's still unproven & hasn't really accomplished anything. Also, he wasn't one of our top offensive talents. If he was, why would he rot on our 3rd line? Believe it or not, we got probably as much as we could from Vrbata as far as trade value. Anything else would've been a high pick....definately not a top end player like O'Neil. I mean, look at the Nedorost deal. We didn't exactly get Luongo or Boumesteer in return did we?
