Vanek hoping for good health

Thomas Vanek, according to his Web site, is sick of all the ailments he suffered this year, especially his ankle injury suffered in the playoffs.

"It’s really annoying because I felt really completely healed and in shape for the first time since September when I returned for the final 2 games of the regular season," he wrote on his blog. "Next thing you know I get whacked into the boards in our second playoff game. I had some nagging injuries all season long. It started with the shoulder, than there was something with my abdomen, then the groin and finally the ankle. I really hope that I will be left alone by injuries next season.

"Next season starts in the fall and I promise that we will again give our best. And maybe next year it’s time for my biggest dream to come true…"
