3. Imo vanek would be a massive upgrade over jt in any regard except chemistry. Lets let vanek play with jt and see how many he scores. And how many more jt scores...

And yes...i would be willing to give up moulson + good defensive prospect for vanek.
1. Rolston had 1 yr/$5m on his deal, when he was traded for Hunter 2 yrs/$4m.
One bad, short term contract for another.
Moulson and Okposo are on very team friendly contracts.

2.Someone posted that the isles will never win a cup with Mopulson+ Okposo.
I pointed out the Sabres haven't won one with Vanek.

3.Again with the crystal ball..player X would be great alongside Tavares

Im simply saying that comparing the two is dumb because Vanek's track record predates and cant compare with anything Moulson has done...Vanek hasn't had a center of tavares quality...in...years...if ever...and still he averages 33. It also came out after the season finished vanek was playing with a broke foot last year for months which diminished his ability as seen in his second half scoring(though I dont believe in excuses like that.) The year before last roy missed half the year...Ruff's an idiot...put Vanek in the right situation and its crazy to talk about this...

I mean if u wanna poll people on Moulson vs Vanek...go for it...one is elite one isnt..people who watch the game know this, comparing salaries is stupid (especially when you throw statements around like idc what so and so makes), then why bring it up?

Does a poll matter? Will Moulson and Vanek score any less or any more because fans say Vanek has the better skillset?

Isles love not only Moulson's production the last 3 seasons, but also his team friendly contract.

It's nice that the Sabres are cool with paying Vanek $7.1m per.

The isles would not want to.

Oh, you're right.

The isles owner who claims to have have lost millions in each of the 12 seasons he's owned the team, has been kidding about that.

That's $36m 2011-2012 actual payroll, was not really that far from the $64m ceiling.
Getting several core players to sign backloaded deals, that won't pay the bulk of their salaries after 2015, wasn't done intentiuonally.

The isles clearly have $ to spend and would welcome Vanek's $7m salary.

Thought they should have taken the four first rounders at the time. Zero playoff series wins since then. Money well spent? Hasn't helped that there's been lackluster play at center for many years (how's it going Briere)?

Sabres were cornered pigeons with the Drury-Briere departures, so they had to save face with the fans and sign Vanek.

As far as trading him? Who knows. Vanek, Miller and Pominville are due new deals after 2014.

Pegula better start frackin all of Pennsylvania.

The Isles would be paying Vanek 6.4 mill. ...may not make a difference in your opinion...but atleast use the correct figure.

Capgeek's got his salary listed at $7.1m per, for the next 2 seasons.

Doesn't matter imo. $700,000 difference wouldn't make his salary anymore attractive to Wang/Snow.
