RADIM VRBATA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Vancouver Canucks Clicking Early

#456885212 / gettyimages.com There may not have been a team more eager to start this season then the Vancouver Canucks. Last season was a collective failure for Vancouver as they missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Team management brought in a new head coach in Willie Desjardins as well as a new general manager in Jim Benning. With their coaching staff in place, the...

No chemistry lessons needed for Vrbata and Sedins

When he became a free agent this past summer, Radim Vrbata didn’t go all Jerry Maguire and start yelling, “Show me the money!” Oh, he wanted some of that — and got it in a $10-million US two-year deal with the Vancouver Canucks — but what Vrbata really wanted was some on-ice chemistry. He thinks he’s found it with Daniel and Henrik Sedin. “It’s a funny thing, chemistry...

Interview period will show Vrbata's worth

Radim Vrbata is about to get a sense of his worth. That could spell the end of his latest (last?) Coyotes' tenure. Beginning Wednesday, teams are allowed to contact soon-to-be unrestricted free agents from other clubs during the free-agent interview period. Official agreements, binding offers and promises (oral or written) are still not permitted during this period, but unlike...

Phoenix Coyotes: Holes to be filled in free agency

When a team misses the playoffs, like the Phoenix Coyotes did in 2013-14, it takes a pretty good offseason to right the ship. Normally, this could result in a fire sale with all the best assets of the team shipped away for younger talent, but something tells me the Coyotes will stick to this core. I think they’re right to do that, meaning the pressure is on to hit it big on the...

Coyotes need Vrbata, but Vrbata needs to heal

GLENDALE, Ariz. Remember that bizarre reaction Radim Vrbata had to penicillin last season -- the one that caused a painful and migrating rash that was exacerbated by perspiration and the lack of ventilation caused by his hockey equipment? The one that caused agonizing joint pain and swelling in plenty of unpleasant locations? Now remember how some critics questioned Vrbatas toughness...

Sore Vrbata comes up big in Coyotes' big win

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Radim Vrbata had just taken the ninth day of a 10-day penicillin regimen when the allergic reaction began. It was March 14, the first day of the Coyotes four-game road trip in Vancouver.

Vrbata's OT goals leads Coyotes over Stars

GLENDALE, Ariz. Radim Vrbata doesn't do insignificant goals any more. "Just the big ones," Coyotes captain Shane Doan said. None was bigger than Saturday's overtime score that gave the streaking Phoenix Coyotes a 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars at Jobing.com Arena. It was Phoenix's seventh win in its last eight games and 15th point over that stretch. Phoenix...
