Radim Vrbata's camp doesn't wish to reveal which teams are in the running for the UFA wing out of respect for the process and those teams."
It's like Lou doing the comm' for Vrbata' agent...
NHL Tonight... doing coverage of available UFAs, nice piece on Vrbata, after the other hosts took their turns pointing out Vrbata's skills, Craig Button went out of his way to mention Vrbata's fit in New Jersey, emphasized the Devils...
Button, I think you have to support Radim Vrbata game. He knows how to get open, kindof shifty, around the front of the net, a really good release, gotta have somebody that can get him the puck. He's not going to be one of those 'boards guys',,, one of those guys, you know, scrapping for the puck in the corners, yah gotta get'em the puck and situations where he's breaking free in the offensive zone and that's the team that's going to get the best of his ability.
[Kelly Chase: Yeah, you're right, he finds ways to jump into holes, when the puck is laying there when he arrives, he knows what to do with it. Not going to get his nose dirty as much as some of the guys out there that score those types of goals, again... it's hard to find guys when they get the puck in front of the net, they can finish,.especially in the size and age of goalies right now.]
Button, "And he's[Vrbata] has been a terrific shootout guy.
[Mike Kelly: Absolutely!]
Button, So the other part of this is, that you know, you're short... you're the New Jersey Devils. you want to consider Radim Vrbata.
[Mike Kelly: You can't discount the importance of the shootout! New Jersey proved that last season.]
