If Vanek was available, I would be all over that guy. He is still very young and he DOES produce. He would be a way better fit for what LA already has than Dean going after either of Spezza or Lacavalier as has been rumored.
Put Vanek on this club with what we have in top end talent at forward and D and that would really put us at a totally different level.
What we would have to give to get him if there were any kind of potential deal on the table would be steep though.
A guess could be something along the lines of JJ + Stoll + Lokti as the prime pieces?
While I do realize that we would hurt in the faceoff dept for the short term, that could be dealt with easily enough thru a deadline deal.
JJ would be a hard guy to let go of, but this could really bring a balance to the Kings and even though they don't have another JJ in the waiting we certainly have built a future defense corp thru the draft that can come in and play decently now.
