Unfortunately, as much as he can get.

If I was DP, i'd be all over this. Vinny isn't what he once was, but he's better than anything else out there, way better than anything we have, and fills a gigantic hole on our team.

I have some feeling that some dumb Canadian team will offer him something incredibly stupid based on his name.

But maybe this pushes one of the other FA's down the board a bit.


Also, does this put Tampa in the Barkov hunt - they'll need a center to replace him.
