[Proposal] Thomas Vanek ???


Recommended Posts

Maybe 5 years ago.  He was a good player in his prime but a little past it now.  We need more players in their prime (or preferably just before) not necessarily going after people who have already made a name for themselves and are on the back end of their career.

Everyone seems a little worried about term of contract, would it be worth kicking the tires of Vanek and offer him a 2-3 year contract?  Sedins could relight his lamp

Thoughts?

 

He should be one of the last options for us.  Lucic, Eriksson, ect.. should be our targets before we go after a player who mostly floats around in the d-zone. He is a shooter for the most part and seems like he had a drop off. Usually at his age drop offs are not a one season thing but rather what they are doing for the rest of their careers.

Vanek is NOT an option.  Why would you want him on our team at all?

Would never play a heartless floater more than 1.5 mill per, this guy hasn't been relevant in years. Look at how people jumped all over verbby this year, he was only one year removed from being the team MVP! LOL.....Vanek here is not a good idea at all. 

I second this.

 

Softer than Vrbata, no kidding.... 

 

Not getting a pile of goals out of this soft ass floater.

Was just going to say that !!! Maybe a new scapegoat to replace Vrbata ?? God knows CDC needs a new one.

Anson Carter who?  Skilled shooters can play with Hank and Danny...and prosper

What? Dude, Carter was a freaking sandbag on the crease and that's about it from what I remember. 

 

If he was a "skilled shooter" how on earth did he fail so badly on every other NHL team he played for?

 

Plug, sandbag, those words come to mind. Skilled shooter? You must be really high. You're thinking a different Carter...
