No way in hell. Trading Vanek for this package would be really bad asset management.

Critizice Vanek all you want, but he's a proven first liner (in fact currently our only one besides Pominville). If you trade him, you'd need to replace his scoring, while Grabner might never be able to come close to his break out season again, for all we know.

Nielsen is a 3rd liner, albeit a good one at that, but you don't trade a proven first line scorer for this kind of package.

And btw. the Nash trade isn't a good example, since he practically forced his way out of C-bus and had a NTC on top of that which surely lowered his value.
