BREAKING NEWS: Isles Acquire Vanek From Sabres

According to reports, the Islanders have acquired forward Thomas Vanek from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for forward Matt Moulson, a 2014 1st round pick, and a 2015 2nd round pick.

Vanek has registered 497 points in 598 career games in the NHL.  His best season came in 06/07 when he put up 43 goals and 41 assists in 82 games.

I have been screaming for the Islanders for years to show a commitment to winning.  They have finally done that by making a deal like this.  Vanek is of another calibur player that Tavares has never had the chance to play with before.  I know some are concerned about him resigning but I would be shocked if he isn't resigned by the Olympic break.
