Thank you Thomas Vanek

Only fitting that one of the top scorers in franchise history gets a thank-you thread.

Whether it was trolling the shootout, or haunting the Bruins/Lightning/whomever else, and taking ****loads of abuse tipping pucks in front of the net, Vanek produced some very nice moments.

Nothing but luck to him in New York.

TV's the man. I would have loved to see him stay forever, but I can't blame him for likely telling Darcy that he wouldn't stay. I wish him nothing but the best.

Going to miss him more than any other recent player, probably since Hasek.

Did this trade come as a shock? I knew he was a pending UFA on a rebuilding team but haven't heard any rumours. Surprised me when I just heard in the Jets/Avs game.

Matt Moulson should be a good addition. I was worried that PAP was a product of Tavares when we picked him up, but he's proved me wrong. And Molson has done significantly better.

All the best to Vanek. I've been a fan since I had him in my pool during his monster year in '07 or '08.

Sad day......I wish him the best but it is about the crest on the front of the sweater...not the name on the back of it.....though I will have a second team to follow now.

Was my favorite player from 2005-2010. Good luck, Thomas. Him with Tavares is going to be awesome.

HOLY CRAP!

I'm a huge Vanek fan and am sad to hear the news. It was an inevitability, however and I wish him the best in the remainder of his career.

It was pretty clear that he did not intend to remain a Sabre after this season. At the same time I thought he continued to give his all as best as he could.

Over the years I came to respect him for the effort he made and the tough role that he had on the Sabres.

An all time Sabres great, IMO

THANK YOU THOMAS VANEK!

An absolute favorite player. Good luck, Thomas, and thanks for all the memories. I think this league is about to find out what kind of a star you really are.

GD right. Definitely going to miss Tom, more so than anyone else from the old Rochester core.

Many great memories from this guy. I'm going to miss those effortless shootout attempts and wicked deflections.

Best of luck to you TV, and thanks again!

I doubt anyone sincerely expected he'd be traded so early, but everyone expected he'd be traded by the deadline. I'm glad he's traded early as it decreases the chances the team plays itself into a worse pick but still no playoffs. Hope they can trade Miller soon, too.
