Description: Vancouver winger Radim Vrbata had two points in Friday's win against the Oilers.

Description: Winger Radim Vrbata signed a two-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks and should enjoy his time there on a line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
Insight: The 33-year-old Vrbata had 20 goals, 31 assists, 263 SOG and 21 PPP last season, so he was still a quality fantasy winger and is the first option to play with the twins. We're predicting an increase in scoring to 29 goals and 56 points for the upcoming season.
