What if we trade all that and then Gaborik gets a concussion in his first year here? Then what? Then Vanek will probably be a fifty goal scorer with Connolly setting him up for 50 assists in Minnesota. And WE are left with nothing.
Under that theory we should never have made any trades, ever.

What if Beauregard had been better than Hasek, what if Ruutu suddenly scored 60 goals. I take the proven talent in Gaborik over Vanek right now.

I don't see it happening, but if it did, it would be a fantastic move by the Sabres regardless of Vanek's progression.
