UPDATE: As relayed by Andy Boron of SB Nation, GM Darcy Regier confirms the Buffalo Sabres are actively trying to trade forward Thomas Vanek (and goaltender Ryan Miller). However, despite healthy interest from around the league, the hefty financial weight of Vanek's annual salary ($6.4 million, $7.41 million cap hit) sits as a fairly significant speed bump on route to closing such a deal.
