It came down to the wire but the New York Islanders found a new home for Thomas Vanek. The high-scoring winger is now a member of the Montreal Canadiens.
The Islanders have been working on dealing Vanek for a while but the market was reportedly only going down as the deadline approached. How low did it go? The Canadiens only gave up prospect Sebastien Collberg. There are some draft picks in play here too; if the Habs make the playoffs (very likely), they send a second-round pick to the Isles. If they miss the playoffs, New York sends a fifth-round pick to Montreal.
