The Sabres Observer

A piece today from The Fourth Period featured the Flyers and what GM Paul Holmgren has been up to as the Wednesday trade deadline approaches.
One of the players in whom he reportedly has shown interest is Sabres forward Thomas Vanek.
Flyers GM Paul Holmgren has kicked the tires on Anaheim Ducks sniper Bobby Ryan, Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle, Dallas Stars right wing Jaromir Jagr and Buffalo Sabres star Thomas Vanek.
While I would file Vanek playing in a Philly jersey under the "not likely" category, it's easy to see why the Flyers would want him. Plus, despite some reports that Vanek is off the table, Darcy Regier has made it pretty clear that he is listening to offers for anyone and everyone.
