some soft news on vanek: according to an austrian tv announcer, vanek could play in the KHL (he did mention Slovan Bratislava as a possibility)

Bernd Freimüller (he was european scout for Atlanta Thrashers from 1998 till 2011 and is now working for the Vienna Capitals) mentioned that Vanek is probably too expensive for most of the clubs in austria. i guess he means vaneks homeclub Graz. He said some clubs (mainly Red Bull Salzburg) could have the money for insuring NHL players (Nödl, Grabner) but probably not Vanek.

This is very freely translated from this article -> link (german)



PS: there is some weird cap-like points system in the EBEL which is another reason besides the insurance that vanek might not play in austria
The game actually starts in half an hour so you didn't miss it.
