Thomas Vanek Trade Rumors

sabres-nhl-trade-rumors

The Buffalo Sabres are currently sitting at 10th place in the Eastern Conference. With players like Derek Roy, Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller, the Sabres were expected to make the playoffs. Roy was leading the Sabres in scoring with 35 points in 35 games, until he got a season ending injury. The Sabres next highest scorer is Vanek.

On pace for 32 goals and 30 assists, he is having a decent season. Vanek's salary is high at over 7 million but with the right linemates it is believed he could score over 40 goals. The Los Angeles Kings GM, Lombardi, has contacted the Sabres concerning Vanek. With him on a line with Anze Kopitar, the Kings would be a legitimate Stanley Cup contender. If Lombardi can dump some salary, expect a trade. Something like Brayden Schenn and some Kings prospects or picks in return for Vanek. Schenn would help the Sabres, as they desperately need a second line center.
