No it really wouldn't. Vinny is nowhere near the player he was three seasons ago (since his injury). Decent player now (not a superstar anymore). Plus that contract makes it virtually impossible to get anything of value for him considering only a few teams in the NHL could even afford it (let alone fit it).

Its a moot point though. Vinny isn't being moved. Not because the Lightning wouldn't like to but because no GM in this league is going to be stupid enough to take that contract. Granted Vinny isn't a terrible player (like the Gomez contract) but that contract is a killer contract.
