VL is on a different level and type of player than anything we have on the team and in the pipeline and would likely compliment Gaborik well.

Johansen can fight for second line center duty with our host of other centers.

I would say the odds of us getting him are remote (not even sure we'd try), but would it surprise me if we did? No.
I agree, VL is not done. It seems Tampa bought him out in large part because of the retirement liability in the new CBA (They'd have the cap-hit even if he retired early).
