...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.
Pretty much agreeing with what I said. I stated that I don't think we could get a first rounder, but why not ask for one if his production keeps up? He's been a point-per-game player thus far; we know he won't keep up that pace, but if he has, say, 50-55 points at the deadline, let's get as much as we can. The costs at the trade deadline have risen year after year, and will only continue to do so when teams like Boston can load up and win the cup.
