Vanek would be a good fit with the Islanders. Think it'll cost more than Okposo and a 1st to get him though.

Regier was quoted in a recent puckdaddy article and it sounds like the falling cap, Vanek's approaching ufa status , the high return the Sabres want and Vanek's salary make it likely Vanek is a Sabres when the season starts.

Both Miller and Vanek will likely be Sabres until the trade deadline.

It's a fact. Witnessed it myself a few times when traveling with the team.

But so what? Bossy was (and still is) a smoker. Think anyone cared? Okposo's performance is obviously not affected. Proof is on the ice. We all see he has elite energy and stamina. He will be retired before the cigs kill him.

Not broke, just cheap. Wang is still near billionaire.

Just like Hossa and Kovalchuk brought back ransoms in their mercenary year, yes?

No no you silly guy! I certainly did not equate Vanek with Komisarek and Ballard. Vanek, IMO, is a true elite winger. The other guys are bottom pairing dmen.

My point is that Isles fans on this board have had to suffer through weekly (and increasingly out there) Komisarek and Ballard proposals for years. There never was any chance the Isles would take those guys - the fans of those respective teams just wanted to see something there.

I think that will probably happen with Vanek and Miller too. We'll see weekly proposals from Sabre fans wanting young assets from the Island, until they eventually get moved to contending teams at the deadline.

BTW, why is everybody arguing about whether Vanek is top ten, better than Neal, Voracek, etc? Can't we all just agree that he is a stud? Who cares whether he is better than other studs out there? At least for now, he would indeed be the best winger in NY.
