Some interesting details have emerged regarding Sundays blockbuster trade between the Buffalo Sabres and New York Islanders involving forwards Thomas Vanek and Matt Moulson. As reported on Tuesday by TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, Vaneks former team the Sabres will retain approximately $1.4 million - or roughly 20 per cent - of whats left of the $6.4 million he is still owed in the final year of his contract. TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun added Tuesday that if the 2014 first-round draft pick acquired by Buffalo in the deal ends up being a Top 10 selection in June, the Islanders would have the option to defer the pick to the 2015 draft. Another wrinkle in trade news from the weekend came up on Tuesday as TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported that Vanek was offered to the Toronto Maple Leafs three-to-four days ago, but there was no deal to be made. According to Dreger, the return that general manager Darcy Regier received from the Islanders for Vanek was something that the Maple Leafs - or other clubs - werent willing to pay. The Islanders acquired Vanek from the Sabres in exchange for Moulson, a first-round draft pick in 2014 and a 2015 second-round pick. Vanek - who is in the last year of a seven-year, $50 million contract - will become an unrestricted free agent after this season. Moulson - who scored twice in a 4-3 loss to Dallas on Monday - is also in the final year of his deal and speculation is that the Sabres could trade him again prior to the Mar. 5 deadline.

Bowles, a highly sought candidate after leading Arizonas defence the last two seasons, had a second interview Tuesday with owner Woody Johnson and consultants Charley Casserly and Ron Wolf — along with Maccagnan — and apparently impressed the Jets enough to move forward.The team cancelled a scheduled interview with Carolina defensive co-ordinator Sean McDermott that was set for Wednesday. Bowles also called off a second meeting with the Atlanta Falcons for their head coaching vacancy that was scheduled for Wednesday.It was believed that Seattle defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn was the frontt-runner for the job, but teams arent allowed to meet with him again until the Seahawks are eliminated or during the bye week before the Super Bowl.dddddddddddd Instead of waiting for Quinn, the Jets brought Bowles back and worked to sign him to a deal.It will be a homecoming of sorts for Bowles, who is a native of Elizabeth, New Jersey. He also served as the Jets defensive backs coach under then-coach Al Groh during the 2000 season.Bowles played defensive back for eight seasons in the NFL, including starting for Washington in the Super Bowl in 1988.With the Jets, Bowles will inherit a solid defensive front seven — which was always Ryans primary focus — with rising stars in defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson. The secondary, however, needs a major overhaul.After several stops as a coach at the college and pro levels, Bowles was hired as the Miami Dolphins assistant head coach and secondary coach from 2008-11. He served as the teams interim head coach for the final three games of the 2011 season, going 2-1 after Tony Sparano was fired.Bowles went to Philadelphia in 2012 as the Eagles secondary coach, but was elevated to defensive co-ordinator when the team dismissed Juan Castillo. After that season, Bowles was hired as Arizonas defensive co-ordinator.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
