Buffalo would not trade Vanek right now for anything in the world. Guy is unbelievably hot. Also, no more trades for players like Ward / Goose / Gill. Sit on what we have until you can make a major move for a real forward. You might not get the Vaneks / Kovalchuks / etc. of the world, but someone like a Pominville might be achievable. It will be expensive though.
I would not make any trades until ~Game 24. If we're in neigh-lottery territory, sit on what you have, trade the spare parts (Gill / Goose / SK maybe) at the deadline for overpriced returns, make some smart draft picks, replace the traded spare parts with some up and coming young guys (Watson, Ekholm, etc.) and see where we end up. Even if we're in 7-9 territory, I certainly wouldn't sell the barn. Let's be real here; the Cup is not coming down Broadway this Summer.
I don't envy Poile for his job; being a GM has to be brutal.
