I dont know what people are actually expecting to get at the deadline that would be better than what we could get right now. I think Darcy is holding out hope to re-sign Vanek IMO.

If the plan was to trade Vanek, not re-sign him, then keeping him into the season is a failure.
It's largely about cap space. Teams are up against the cap with UFA signings like Iginla to Boston and Alfie to Detroit.

At the deadline, Vanek is more movable because the Sabres will have paid a majority of his salary.

If Regier's phone was ringing off the hook for Vanek, he'd be gone already.
