Not a fan of any teams in the proposals, so this is unbiased.
I think Buffalo has to give up a little bit more for the package to San Jose. I think they need to get more back in the other proposals. In trading away Vanek (much less Adam) you're arguably giving up the best player in each trade (the San Jose deal perhaps being the exception). Centers are plenty in this league, even though top tier ones are not. Scoring from the wings, however, is a premium asset.
I'd love him on the Hawks, but he wouldn't represent an upgrade over any of Hossa, Kane, or Sharp...and I quite frankly wouldn't know whom else to give up for him. He doesn't really fill a need, and would create a hole elsewhere, if not represent a lateral move.
Just my 2 cents...worth about half as much (at most).
