Methinks we shouldn't be planning our future out of spite for the Edmonton Oilers ;) Not to mention that Vanek + Sundin's salary would put us over the cap. Plus, I think you try to retain Kesler at all costs. I think he's about as untouchable as they get on this team, or at the very least he should be.

Burke left the Nucks ages ago. Why would Lowe hate us still? Next season we're easy pickings.

Either way, he doesn't hire Tambellini to screw us. He hires him because Tamb is a pro.
I wonder if they'll disallow the whole game because of the distinct ass-kicking motion the Canucks used on the Kings? - Brian CC

Congratulations on the new job dave, try not to fuck it up this time eh? - UKCanuck

Sounds like a crock... Why would we trade away the best forward on the team ( Kesler ) for some maybe's that would put us over the top..

Do you really think Buffalo would trade Vanek?

The Sabres seem to come up at least once a week here, and as the resident Sabres fan I'll weigh in once again.

1) Buffalo won't trade Vanek. If they didn't do it for 4 of Edmonton's first round picks they won't do it for Kesler and a couple scrubs.

2) You actually think Darcy Regier will do anything that exciting? His offseason plan this year has been: Trade the best part of the Campbell trade for picks, get one defenceman via trade when we need 3, sign no free-agents, re-sign Miller. All but the last one are lateral moves with no thought of long term viability of the franchise. The Sabres didn't make the playoffs last year and have made no changes. They'll miss again. They seem intent on finishing 10th (I'm done venting I promise).

3) We need a scoring winger sure, but Vanek is expensive and certainly isn't a boneafide 40 goal scorer. He is a talented winger, but he plays a fast attacking style and can't set up his linemates. I just can't see a fit for him here.

4) We need a 2nd line centre more than a scoring winger.

5) This isn't CDC.
