    Re: What do you have to say about Vanek now?

    I think it is very reasonable to compare Vanek to Satan. However, they're not 100% alike. As Thurm stated, Vanek will go to the front of the net and give up his body to make plays. On the other hand, he will not take a guy on in the corners or throw a check...just like Satan. He also is very similar to Satan in his work ethic. Both players play when they want to and do not skate hard all the time. So, yes...these players do have similarities.

    Vanek goes in front of the net.
    Satan does not

    Satan has a hard slapshot
    Vanek does not

    Aside from those differences, they're basically the first human clones

    I still think they should have said No Deal and taken all the draft picks from Edmonton.

    plus we are desperate. I don't give a **** what anyone says, our farm system is pretty damn dry. We could have used those 4 number ones.

    Re: What do you have to say about Vanek now?

    Judging our farm system, wouldnt we just have to look at the Amerks in the standings? Now I'll be honest I dont follow them much at all but arent they doing quite poor this year?

    sabres have only put in a portion of rochester players... a majority of them are either amerks exclusive, or panthers property....

    Just seemed when we would bring up players the last few years, the amerks would lose the following game without them..

    see the problem with rochester for floridas sake would be distance.... their echl team is in florida, and sometimes they would purposely send them down to the ECHL just to make the trip shorter...

    the biggest skill players for rochester were def. buffalo property, unless they were amerks only property (ahl contracts)

    Re: What do you have to say about Vanek now?

    How much do players make in the AHL anyway.. or do they not get paid?

    I know someone playing for the Blue Jackets farm club but I think its just an AHL contract for now..

    depends, if its the NHL team having them on an ahl exclusive contract it ranges from 50-100k
