Solid two way forward with good speed and shot but not physical at all

Discuss..
Would be the kind of guy i would like to see...as long as it's not for more than 3-4 years. Ideally 2-3 years at around 4.5-5 mil.

Would love this as long as it's not too much. Great speed, good goal scorer. Would be great on Plekanec's wing as many have said but he would fit pretty well with anyone.

Thought he'd be out with us trading for PAP but with Gionta all but gone there's still a spot and there's no one in our org that's ready to fill it.

Good. I like Vrbata... plus it'll be fun to see how people butcher the spelling of his name.

Virbata? Verbata? Virbatta? Verbatta? Vrbatta?

Why....? Habs have plenty of players like him. He has aged and not very effective anymore. If I was the GM I would pass

Cannot say that i'm a fan of the guy but he does produce some pts so i guess it could be worth a try on a short term contract (1-2years ideally). Anything crazy like 4x5 , 5x5 or even 3x5 and i'm out. Don't like his softness

Vrbata plays nothing like Gionta though. Gionta is mostly a grinder with some skill. Vrbata is a soft skill guy with two way abilities. Vrbata also plays more of a east-west game than Gio who is all about north-south.

What they have in common is speed but other than that they are two very different type of players.

I never said in play style. Vrbata would slot into Gionta's position playing the tough shutdown minutes with pleks while putting up similar numbers as gionta did roughly 2-3 years ago. Strong 2-way winger.

Not sure I'd call vrbata soft, though.

This is a smart acquisition for plekanec RW.. Parenteau plays with Eller and bourque as a pure set up winger

Savard on LTIR will free up 4M. A compliance buyout can be used on someone like Kelly to free up another 3M.
