With the trade that didn't happen, and the pick ups that did, are the Bolts ready to embark on this season? Or is there more in the works?
I am particularly interested in Radim Vrbata. Showed flashes of competence and speed in his short career, however, made the move to the KHL... with interesting comments of coming back to the NHL to complete the last 2 yrs of his contract.
Does anyone out there believe him? I mean being a Habs fan myself, I have been awaiting the arrival of super-prospect Yemelin (D for KHL) for 3 yrs, only to be jilted again to hear that he and his agent believe the 'guarantees' that the KHL club can make are better than the ones the Habs can/have. Does Vrbata have the same option? Does Oren let him slide like this? Is there a way to cut ties and the salary that he is due to make?
I think Vrbata would be a good addition to this yrs Bolts, but, can't imagine what will happen if he suddenly reappears prior to training camp.
