The Vancouver Canucks may have found a nice option to skate alongside the Sedins on their top line. Brett Pesce Jersey . Numbers Game breaks down the Canucks signing of Radim Vrbata. The Canucks Get: RW Radim Vrbata. Vrbata is a 33-year-old winger who has been quietly effective while toiling in the Arizona desert. Hes scored 110 goals and 232 points over the past five seasons, the 110 goals ranks 36th in the league. Hes a positive puck possession player and should be looking at a plum opportunity in Vancouver. If there is one enviable spot for a scoring forward to play in the Canucks lineup, it would be on right wing with the Sedin twins and thats where Vrbata is projected to start. Last seasons 51 points was Vrbatas third-best total of his career, and that came with a 7.6% shooting percentage, his lowest in a full season since 2006-2007. He also had an on-ice shooting percentage of 7.69%, which is relatively modest, and while the Sedins were in that range last season too, they have typically had better success finishing. There is justifiably some concern that Vrbata is 33 and the Sedins will be 34 by the time next season begins, so production may be declining as a function of age -- standard stuff -- but, based on their respective skills, Vrbata and the Sedins should be productive together. An additional concern, when it comes to Vrbata in particular, is that hes had limited success while playing for a team other than the Coyotes. He has 288 points in 428 games with the Coyotes, 0.67 per game, but hes never been that productive anywhere else, averaging 0.48 points per game in 364 games with Colorado, Carolina, Chicago and Tampa Bay. Until they add another top-six forward, Arizona figures to miss Vrbata. They dont have a ton of skill up front and, unless Sam Gagner moves to the wing (opening up a hole at centre), the Coyotes current wingers on the top two lines would be Mikkel Boedker, Shane Doan, Martin Erat and Lauri Korpikoski. Thats a situation that needs to be addressed if Arizona is going to be competitive next season. Its reasonable to have hopes for Vrbata to remain productive, playing with skilled linemates, but there are a few risks involved too. The Canucks mitigated against those risks by keeping the term of Vrbatas deal short, signing him for two years and $10-million.

Boston is making its first appearance in the ALCS since 2008. For Detroit, its a third straight trip to the ALCS and its fourth in eight years. Andrei Svechnikov Jersey . Now, he might be their hottest pitcher. Lobstein earned up his first major league victory Sunday night, allowing one run in 5 2-3 innings in the Tigers 6-1 win over the San Francisco Giants.Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Bjugstad scored the eventual game- winner in the closing seconds of the second period as the Florida Panthers downed the Buffalo Sabres, 3-2, on Saturday. Brad Boyes and Tomas Kopecky also scored, and Aaron Ekblad assisted on all three of Floridas goals in the clubs fifth straight win over Buffalo. Roberto Luongo, who shut the Sabres out on Oct. 17, stopped 26-of-28 shots, while Michal Neuvirths 34-save effort went for naught. Drew Stafford and Brian Gionta accounted for Buffalos offense. Boyes took a cross-ice pass from Jussi Jokinen and ripped a wrister over Neuvirths left shoulder with 6:55 remaining in the opening period. Stafford, who missed the prevvious three games with a lower body injury, evened things at the 11:02 mark of the middle stanza off a nice pass from Cody Hodgson, but Kopecky answered 1:53 later with his first goal of the season. Jack Drury Jersey. Giontas tip-in of a Mike Weber shot tied it again, but Bjugstad found the back of the net with 16.2 seconds left in the second. The Sabres recorded 10 shots on net in the third period but did not get anything through Luongo en route to their second straight loss. Game Notes Neuvirth was making his first start since Nov. 18 ... Buffalo went 0-for-2 on the power play, while Florida did not score on its only chance with a man advantage. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseyscheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
