Vanek Admits Helmet Affects His Play

by Anne

Thomas Vanek updated his blog on Monday.

He's obviously disappointed with the way the team has played, but another Austrian with NHL experience is joining the team, so he's optimistic.

The last few sentences of his entry:
My helmet also bothers me a bit. Especially when I try to stickhandle I tend to lose the puck more easily because my vision is hampered.
That's basically what we all thought, but no one really wanted to admit it in Buffalo.

Fortunately, he'll be able to ditch that thing by next season.

The pride of Austria


  1. Awww poor Tommy... he needs a snuggle.

  2. Awww poor Tommy... he needs a snuggle.I'll do it!
    What a face.
