Did play a little bit with Crosby & Dupuis and seemed okay but he needs at least one pure grit/grinder type and another decent forechecker.

He can't replace Whitney but he'll probably limit the downside to no longer having Ray.
Actually that sounds positive. He is expected to play on the Hanzal, Vrbata line which is exactly what you discribed. And, IMO, he will adequately replace Whitney on the ice and revitalize his career...
