He's a modern version of Florida's Pavel Bure, a one man show (although less so considering the Sabres have way more weapons than those Panthers teams did, although Bure's contributions in 1999-2000 got them a franchise high 98 pts. which then all went out the window in 00-01 although he had 59 that season!). Vanek is just scary in that way, though he's not as explosive as Bure was.
Good entertaining game, SKost better watch it or he could be the one going back to Hamilton instead of Dags. AKost has been the Habs most dangerous forward the past few games, it might be time to throw him on the right side permanently.
If someone here tonight says something negative about Brisebois I'll never come back.
Seriously he played his best game of the season...if not in years.
Hamrlik was fantastic. Funny how he looks good once he does not play with O'byrne. Coincidence ? NO
i'm not trying to nit-pick, well i am, but you must of missed him literally following Hammer to cover a guy to the right of Carey, leaving a Sabre wide open with a scoring chance, and then again, when Hecht came down the left wing with all day, and another scoring chance...
...overall, i still think he played a good game...got the puck out when need be and what not...
