Buffalo trades Thomas Vanek to the Islanders for Matt Moulson, a First in 2014, and a Second in 2015.
Seems a bit odd, considering Moulson has more goals, and the same amount of points in fewer games. He also makes $3.133M compared to Vanek's $7.14. Both are UFA at the end of the season.
Tavares will love it, but they should have got Miller or a dman instead.
But I guess Moulson will probably re-sign at season's end with Vanek testing free agency and most definitely hitting pay dirt.
