Not arguing your post just pointing out we shouldn't be matching offers just because it's Vanek. If somebody offers him 7.5 (and someone will) then it's probably time to move on.
What a GM is willing to pay him on the open market is by definition his fair market value.

Maybe you mean to say that great teams tend to pay very few players their market value and hold onto a lot of guys on bargain contracts.
