As much as I love Vinny, 1st rounder is probably a stretch. In 2008, with 62 games played and 57 points (29+28), Tampa traded him to Flyers for a 2nd rounder (upgraded from 3rd rounder because Philly got to the conference finals) and an AHL calibre defenseman (Picard).

...Now it's 3 years later, Vinny probably won't be anywhere near 30 goals at the trade deadline and he has also shown that he's not entirely invincible injury-wise. Considering his rather low contract, I think Columbus could get a similar return as Tampa back then, but not a lot more.
