At worst, Vncour is proving he can be an effective checker and play the PK.

When you flippantly throw away NHL prospects who play that role you end up spending $1.8 million on Bottom 6ers like Fiddler and $1+ on Burish.
i totally agree with the principle here, i just don't think he is "proving he can be an effective checker." as you say though, he is young and could develop, i just don't think he's ready now. i'd love to be wrong.
