They almost lost Vanek to Edmonton---and I'm sure they would've let him go considering the price they had to pay to keep him, but they HAD to cough up the cash after the PR nightmare of letting Drury/Briere slip away.

As it turns out, however, Vanke has really come through for them in the end.

On a sidenote: I do like Paul Hamilton's cynical and sarcastic comments, especially when he criticizes the team after a loss, but after a win, he really does pour on the accolades. I admit I did laugh out loud when I heard him on the postgame show, say that if the Sabres can go on a streak now, they can basically restart their season.

Gee, I wonder if they thought of that?
