Reports from the desert are saying that the Coyotes will be without Radim Vrbata (Box 2) for their next game against the Blue Jackets tonight. Vrbata will miss the contest with a sore groin.
Vrbata isn't very popular in the second box of the sheet, but since he has 33 points in 43 games this season for the dogs, he should go rather high in the second Waiver Draft, as he's the highest scoring forward before his injury. His scoring through the season is actually quite comparable to those who were taken in the initial draft, but he's hit quite the cold spell as he's only had 1 assist in his past 6 games. It could very well be that he's in need of some rest.
