Canucks Acquire LaBarbera from Kings

As per TSN:
“The Vancouver Canucks added some goaltending insurance Tuesday, acquiring Jason LaBarbera from the Los Angeles Kings for a seventh-round pick in the 2009 NHL entry draft.”

Jason is expected to take one Curtis Sanford’s job (holding the team together until Luongo returns) after Sanford sustained a groin injury Tuesday.

Jason “was deemed expendable with the improved play of Jonathan Quick, who recorded a pair of shutouts for Los Angeles last week.”

Many would have expected Jason to go for much more, considering he was being used as a starting goaltender by the Kings.
