Description: The Bruins and Ducks are both in on Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek, who is expected to be dealt before tomorrow's trade deadline. SOURCE: David Pagnotta, TheFourthPeriod.com
Insight: With no guarantee that Vanek (21 goals, 32 assists) will re-sign as a free agent this summer, it makes sense for the Islanders to deal him now so they can at least get something in return. Boston acquired Jaromir Jagr at the trade deadline last season and could make another big splash at this year's deadline. Acquiring Vanek would certainly qualify.
