    Moulson is so gonna get flipped for more picks and prospects. His cap hit is much lower, and he can eat half of that in the process. He's going to turn Vanek into what amounts to 4 or 5 pieces (Picks and Prospects)
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I'm still trying to figure out why Vanek is worth Molson + 2 picks considering Molson has slightly better numbers over the last five years. And if Vanek doesn't sign with NYI, they just dumped a #1 and a #2 pick for absolutely nothing.

    what does Vanek bring that Moulson doesn't at this point? I'm scratching my head at this trade if I'm the Islanders.

    Smart for Buffalo and definitely a head scratcher for the Isles. But then again, it's the Islanders. They're stupid.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    It'll be nice to see Vanek finally getting to play with a real center.

    I would speculate that it has entirely everything to do with having spoken with Vanek & Moulson and their willingness to extend their contracts. Perhaps they are just gambling hoping Vanek signs, but I am certain Snow knows he was going to lose Moulson.

    I am expecting to see Vanek sign an extension with NYI, but expect to see Moulson moved again at the deadline and become a UFA.

    I think you might be giving NYI too much credit.

    isn't it against the rules to talk to impending free agents?

    It is "tampering" to speak to a player under contract with another team unless you get permission from the team (which is why you sometimes have trades of picks/players in exchance for negotiating rights to a coveted upcoming UFA). Buffalo's GM said they never talked to Moulson before the trade. I don't know if the NYI talked to Vanek, but if Buffalo didn't talk to Moulson I'd guess NYI never talked to Vanek.

    Garth Snow reminding us all that he is still Garth freaking Snow.
    Could you imagine AEG hiring Sean Burke to replace Dave Taylor back in 06-07?
    What a ****show they have going under Wang.
