If Buffalo were out of it, and opened to trading him, I'd eat his huge cap hit this year and next to have him on this team.
I don't think we're good trade partners with Buffalo unless they just want to dump Vanek's contract for picks and prospects. They are pretty deep with D prospects like we are so we aren't ideal trade partners. He would be a great addition if something can be worked out and if we can squeeze the cap hit in. He'd be a huge upgrade on Sid's wing and a huge upgrade as a net front guy on the PP.

They're a better team than Winnipeg.

@Vanek: As an Austrian I'd love him here, but he has stretches were he is lazy as **** and can hardly do anything right and he doesn't fit the style that Shero or Bylsma want.

Vanek always seems to start every season with guns blazing, then gets some injury and isn't the same for the rest of the season. He'd be awesome on this team no doubt. But I don't want to know what it'd take to get him nor go anywhere near that cap-hit.

Not sure about that. Jets have lots of young talent and are 2-2. Panthers are 1-4.

The Panthers are absolutely devastated by injury right now.

From the main board:
Quote:
Weaver is recently back from a mild concussion.
Bergenheim is said to have a groin injury, but still remains a mystery, he's not being treated by team doctors and is not skating, -Tallon "I don't know where he is".
Gudbranson dislocated his shoulder in a wakeboard accident.
Goc, ankle.
Versteeg injured his hip in the final training before opening night, rumor floating is he had a hip surgery?
Weiss, lower body, day to day.
Fleischmann, unknown.

Panthers are just getting some reversion. They had an overall losing record last year and were outscored by 25 goals on the season. There were only 6 teams in the entire league that were outscored by a margin significantly higher than the Panthers. They made no major additions to that team. There's pretty much no way they were going to make the playoffs again this year. They got as lucky as a team could last season.

Injuries or no injuries, they're just not a good team.

Habs beat the Devils in OT on the PP.

Flyers fall right back to Earth with a 5-1 loss to Tampa.

Watching this Blues-Wild game on NBC Sports and St. Louis on the powerplay is something to behold. Pierre McGuire mentioned that their entry was so methodical and I have to agree. The Blues are probably my favorite team to watch in the west.

Blues are actually one of the most entertaining teams I've seen in years.

Seeing Duncan Keith's closing speed is ridiculous.

Ryan Suters minutes the last 4 games...27, 23, 27, 32. That's a lot of ice.
