I will find it so ironic if Regier full feelers out to Vanek's agent about a big money extension, the agent rebuffed it thinking that Vanek wanted out of dodge, and now Vanek is going WTF???? after hearing this.
@French Connection and others with similar frustration:
Do you remember in Conan the Barbarian, when Conan's boyhood clan was killed and Conan was enslaved and chained to the millstone apparatus and had to push it for the next decade or so until one day he was strong enough to break free and go forth an kick ass and find Wilt Chamberlain, the forgetable eye candy actress, and that big snake?
Right now, the Sabres are the young Conan, pushing that millstone apparatus in mind-numbing circles. They will break free some day, go forth, and wreak havoc on the world.
you're jumbling up the plots of the barbarian and the destroyer
