Vanek

Hey guys... do you think Buffalo's Vanek will crack the Sabres lineup next year? If he will, will he produce?

I'm in a fantasy hockey pool, and I'm making a list of players who may be sleeper picks for next season, that's why I'm posting this.

Thanks!

A good indicator could be if he is able to make Team Austria for the World Championships. If he fails, I doubt he will do it in Buffalo...

I agree....watching Dany Heatley in his sophmore year was hard...You know he could just rip the game open for the Badgers yet he only did 1 out of 5 nights.

Vanek isn't going to do him self any good going back to College for a year of hockey. Sabres should sign him and at the least put him in the AHL to work on his defensive game.

Here's a link to a recent discussion about Vanek on the Sabres board which includes some links with at least one Minnesota columnist thinking Vanek will be a Sabre next year.
