2001-02 Vancouver Canucks 66 8 17 25 21 1 0 3 0 0 0
2002-03 Vancouver Canucks 81 7 30 37 -15 6 0 1 0 0 0
2003-04 Vancouver Canucks 25 1 11 12 5


He has had one year with more than 30 points. Never scored 10 goals in the NHL, never hit 40 points. His is weak in his own end, and limited offensively.

I realize that he plays in the top four in VCR, but this is a number 5 dman if ever I saw one. I think Martinek will eventually be better , in fact.
He had 37 points last year, pretty close to 40 if you ask me. And he's only 26. There's room for improvement.

If you think you're gonna get a cheaper,younger version of Hamrlik, for Hamrlik, then you're going to be disappointed when the isles deal him.
