  • Panthers' Thomas Vanek: Available for expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/19/17) Vanek was not among the Panthers' protected players, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.

    Vanek was a one-year rental when he was brought in via trade this past season and was probably a near-lock to be exposed for selection by the Golden Knights. The 33-year-old has expressed his interest in remaining with the Panthers, who have just over $14 million in cap space and could certainly fit the veteran into their lineup. While the winger recorded just two goals and eight helpers with Florida, he was able to notch 38 points in 48 contests with Detroit earlier in the year, which muddies the waters for any team discussing whether to sign the unrestricted free agent.

    Panthers' Thomas Vanek: Strongly considering staying with Florida

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/17) Vanek said Tuesday that the Panthers are high on his list for the 2017-18 season, NHL.com reports.

    Vanek is a pending unrestricted free agent. He posted two goals and 10 points in 20 games with the club after coming over in a deal from the Red Wings before the trade deadline. The veteran will be on a team somewhere in 2017-18, but his days as a fantasy mainstay are clearly in the rearview mirror.

    Panthers' Thomas Vanek: Finally delivers for new team with four helpers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/17) Vanek dished out a career-best four assists -- including one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 7-2 win over Toronto.

    Vanek had produced just one point in his first five games with the Panthers, but he finally flashed the skills that enticed Florida to part with young blueliner Dylan McIlrath and a conditional third-rounder for him at the trade deadline here. While the 33-year-old winger is far from fleet of foot at this point, his world-class hands have Vanek over the 40-point mark for the 12th consecutive season since he cracked the NHL in 2005-06.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Risky fantasy play amid trade talk

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/2/17) Vanek is arguably Detroit's most coveted trade chip; therefore, he may be held out of the lineup Tuesday night against the Canucks to avoid an injury, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Vanek is no stranger to the injury bug, so the idea of scratching him in order to preserve his health makes a lot of sense in terms of maximizing his trade value. The Austrian is sure to draw interest as a pending unrestricted free agent who has revived his career in the Motor City, netting a team-high 15 goals and 11 power-play points through 47 games. Vanek is also quite affordable as a rental player cashing in the balance of a $2.6 million deal. It's best to keep Vanek reserved until more is known about his potential landing spot.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: In lineup against Vancouver

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/2/17) Vanek is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Canucks, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Vanek's name was swirling around in the NHL trade winds leading up to the deadline, and there was speculation he might be held out of Tuesday's game as a precaution to keep the valuable trade chip healthy. However, he's in there, so perhaps the Austrian veteran is staying put in Motown.
