Vanek trade talks will continue

The Islanders had hoped to move left wing Thomas Vanek before the Olympic roster freeze kicked in at 3pm ET today, but were unable to pull the trigger on a trade.

Islanders GM Garth Snow will continue trade talks between now and the March 5 trade deadline.

Vanek, 30, recently rejected a seven-year, $50 million contract pitched by the Islanders, and will test the free agent market July 1.

The Islanders' preference was to move Vanek by today and save the organization from paying his salary during the Olympic break.

The Los Angeles Kings are among the teams interested in Vanek, and had in-depth trade negotiations this week. The St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks, New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins are among the teams also interested in Vanek.

The Olympic break ends Feb. 24, upon which teams can resume roster moves, including trades and waivers.
