07:53 AM ET 09.26 | When stacking up a list of the NHL's top trade targets, one might do well to cast a glance to Buffalo. [1. Thomas Vanek, LW, Buffalo:] The Sabres have been trying to rebuild by unloading contracts. General manager Darcy Regier swept up part of the mess at last year's deadline but still wants to move the $6.4 million owed to Vanek. There are plenty of teams that need a top-six forward, but they have to clear off cash as well. Don't be surprised if Vanek moves early. ... [2. Ryan Miller, G, Buffalo:] He gave the Sabres a list of places they couldn't send him before the trade deadline last spring. Don't think for a second some contender won't go looking for a goalie if they get off to a bad start. Miller just has to bide his time. Making $6.25 million, he'll be an attractive commodity.

He barks like a tough guy, but when it's time to come to blows he dips out and his minions get dirty in his place. He's a Hollywood gangster.

It's okay Roamer, he's a Leaf fan so he'll think it's a compliment. ;-)

Who is this Miller you speak of? Is he a friend of Kessel's?

Thomas Vanek will look good on any team. He tried his best in Buffalo but ... it's just plain hard to look good in Buffalo.

Ill throw this out to DL, Argos or any other Leaf fan. Kessel the pew c says he wont negotiate during the season. He hasnt said his goal is to remain in Toronto. If your Nonis what do you do at the deadline? Im not convinced his heart is in Toronto.

You mean he has one?

Nashville is a good fit for him. Nashville needs a sniper, has a sound defensive structure to mask his weaknesses, has modest organizational expectations and has big guys to protect him when he mouths off.
