Vanek-like bucks for Regin?

LOS ANGELES — Peter Regin’s agents are talking tough.

Set to become a restricted free agent on July 1 with the right to file for arbitration, the slick centre, who had a breakthrough season with 29 points in 75 games, is warning he could receive an offer sheet.

Speaking to a Danish TV station, Bjarne Madsen — one of Regin’s European agents — suggested Regin could get an offer sheet similar to the $50- million deal received by Buffalo’s Thomas Vanek in 2007 from the Edmonton Oilers.

Regin, 24, was one of the Sens’ top players in the first- round series against the Penguins with seven points. He made $620,000 last season.

“We’re talking in two different worlds right now,” Madsen told tvsport2.dk. “The club is talking one language and we’re talking another. Peter would like to be in Ottawa and Ottawa would like to keep him, so I wonder if we’ll find common ground soon.”

Anton gone?

The Senators are trying to deal the rights to D Anton Volchenkov so another team can negotiate before July 1. The indications are the Senators would like to get a third-round pick in exchange for Volchenkov, who turned down a five-year, $20-million deal after the Olympic break.
