Vrbata with 2 Goal Game

Standard Spin: Radim Vrbata has always been a dependable, lower-tier, fantasy forwards, but he is scoring goals in 2011-12 like never before.  Saturday he notched his 17th and 18th on the year and now has 31 points in 39 games.  To put this into perspective, last year Vrbata scored 19 in 79 games.  His career high is 27 goals and 56 points back in '07-08, but he is currently on pace to score in the 30-35+ goal range.  Of note: the (other) ageless wonder Ray Whitney scored his 14th on the season in the win over MIN.
