A day after being traded to the Sabres, Matt Moulson made his debut in Buffalo and scored two goals in a losing effort Monday. Thomas Vanek, meanwhile, plays his first game as an Islander on Tuesday against their crosstown rivals, the Rangers. By the way, the Sabres made out like kings on this deal, and they're gonna probably get at least another first-round pick back when they inevitably trade Moulson.

And what have the Isles really gained here? Over the last two seasons and the beginning of this one, Vanek has totaled 111 points in 129 games. That's pretty good. But in that same time, Moulson has 122 points in 140 games actually a very slightly higher scoring rate (0.87 points per game to 0.86) while skating more minutes, shooting more and putting up a better plus-minus than Vanek.
