There was one player in the entire Western Conference last season with more goals scored than Radim Vrbata. One.

LOL, no.

I'd love to see Vrbata on the Jets. World class hands. A 2nd and 3rd would not get it done.

This. Vrbata is sickeningly underrated. If Winnipeg calls asking about Vrbata, Phoenix says start with Scheifele or Bogosian. Whether or not that's fair value is irrelevant. That's likely what it would take to get him out of Phoenix.

Agreed. That would be like another team offering a 2nd and a 3rd for Wheeler.

Vrbata is a beast so far this season 20 games played with 17 points and 10 points on the power play. ....... the most points one of our forwards has on the PP is 5 in 35 games

Vrbata is really one of the core players in Phoenix. He is not old. Coyotes would need a bonafide player(s) back. That Vrbata has great chemistry with Hanzal is also a factor.

You are absolutely not getting Kane or Bogosian for Vrbata. Vrbata is worth far more than a 2nd and 3rd though.

This.

Radim Vrbata is being severely underrated in this thread.

I like Vrbata and all and he is worth more than a 2nd and 3rd, but is there any evidence or guarantee that he will produce at the same rate outside of Phoenix? This was already attempted and didn't work out so well for the player. Doubt he or the team is at all interested in trying again when he is clearly comfortable in the Coyotes system with Hanzal as his centre.

NO TRADE TO BE HAD HERE!! MOVE ALONG.

This gets brought up a lot but I'm not sure it's entirely fair to Vrbata. Yeah he didn't light the world on fire in Tampa. But he wasn't half bad production wise in Chicago.

Those years in Colorado and Carolina he was quite young and was 26 when he first came to Phoenix.

He was bad in Tampa, no doubt. But there were some off ice issues that probably contributed to that.

Then there is the whole system thing. I don't think that explains much either because his best season which earned him that contract from Tampa was under Gretzky. Nothing of Gretzky's Coyotes could be described as a system.


Bottom line is Vrbata wasn't the player then he is today, and one bad year in Tampa shouldn't make everyone immediately think he'll have some huge drop off outside of Phoenix were he to leave.

Ignore him, please.

Vrbata would definitely be worth a 1st+ and from the sounds of it Phoenix has no intentions on moving him so an overpayment would be needed.

Winnipeg is not in a position to overpay.

No deal to be made here.
