Problem is, there is no Vis replacement out there. Look at the available list...not one top-4 guy out there. There could be trades available, but I don't think this is the year to start moving young talent out for improvements. Too much uncertainty and too many holes.
He played for Columbus last season, but I think he was out almost all season with a leg injury.
A good guy on the ice and in the lockerroom. Hopefully, he can stay healthy if he sticks.
He played the first 7 games then I'm pretty sure it was a concussion that held him out for the rest of the year. I don't know...he has knee issues as we know and now concussion problems, I don't think his body would be able to last even a few weeks, especially given how each regular season game will have a higher intensity level than normal.
wait until Eaton, Campoli and Yashin are brought back
You forgot Jon Sim...he's long overdue for a re-return.
Outside of sarcastically saying, "Oh gee...Radek's hurt again...big surprise"...I don't remember frequently saying, "What the hell are you thinking Radek?! Stupid play...ugh!" When he's healthy...he was always a smart player out there defensively. He would just have the absolute worst luck.
