That, my friends, is what we Sabres fans have paid Thomas Vanek in the last 3 weeks. Well over have half a million already (that's probably more than you make in a whole year combined!) to, effectively, replace Drury and Briere (who made approximately as much together, last year, as we're paying the goat-herding, Edelweiss picking, Super G loving Vanek right now. Oh, and for the NEXT SEVEN YEARS.).
You know it really is too soon to make any kind of judgment on the completely insane corner of a contract the Sabres got backed into with Vanek this summer. But it's not too soon for the man to come forward and try to win a game for us. I'm not saying he has to do it but he has to at least stand in front of the net and get chopped down trying.
