THOMAS VANEK RUMORS & GOSSIP

2017 NHL Trade Deadline Target: Thomas Vanek could be the man for the job (again)

Vanek would help flesh out the top six with reliable offensive production. It seems like the Canadiens have been searching for top-six wingers forever. The problem was addressed on right wing with the addition of Alexander Radulov in the off-season, while Artturi Lehkonen has stepped in the bolster what would have otherwise been a shallow left side, though the Finn’s production...
