Thomas Vanek hopes to play for the Wild next year, but he knows that he could be bought out during the off-season.
"I do understand the business side of it," he said. "I'm not happy with my year, but at the same time, I truly still believe that I'm a 30-goal scorer in this league. I'll worry about myself, have a good summer and be ready to go. I signed here not because this is where I live. I signed here because I truly love it here, and I want to win here." He scored just 18 goals and 41 points in 74 games in 2015-16. Vanek sat out four of the last five regular-season games and the playoffs because of broken and displaced ribs. If he is medically cleared to play during the buyout window then it will certainly be an option. Apr 28 - 9:37 AM
