04:33 PM ET 04.29 | Thomas Vanek understands the Buffalo Sabres might look to trade him this offseason. Considering the team is on the cusp of a rebuild and Vanek is entering the final year of a seven-year, $50 million contract, the writing is on the wall for the Sabres forward. With presient Ted Black previously stating the team's interest to develop through the draft, Vanek realizes he could be moved for picks or younger players. Vanek also stated that he had yet to speak to the organization's management team about what the future holds for the franchise. Questioning whether the club would build around youth or the established players on the roster (meaning himself and/or goaltender Ryan Miller), Vanek said there is no indication of what the organization is thinking about doing.

I think you're right. Those folks have just been disgusted with almost everything this year.

The Oilers still want him .... if the Sabres don't get too greedy.
