03:58 PM ET 01.22 | When the New York Islanders traded for Thomas Vanek, giving up three massive pieces to land him, there were questions from the fan base as to whether the team would be able to keep him long-term. Vanek is a free agent at the end of the season, and the Isles are hoping that his time spent with the team will convince him that New York is where he needs to be. There has been discussions in Minnesota of the Wild potentially making a run at Vanek in the offseason. Vanek attended the University of Minnesota, practices on campus in the offseason at Mariucci Arena, still lives in Stillwater and wouldn't mind reuniting with former Sabres linemate Jason Pominville.

If I'm Vanek, I tell the Isles I consider signing with them if they first trade for or sign a top UFA goalie and defenseman this offseason. After spending most of my career at the bottom of the league standings, I want ensure I'm signing on with a team committed to and capable of winning playoff series.

Well that was the hope when they traded for the guy. I hope it happens. I could see an 8 year 66M deal thrown his way for him to stay. I think he'll get a top notch contract this time around too.

Thomas Vanek could mow my lawn but I doubt that will happen either.
