There is a reason, why every Tampa fan (as far as I know them), that answered in this thread sees it as a bad trade for Tampa.
Just because he got not much hype before the last week or so (well he actually got a lot of hype if you compare him to other lightning players/ prospects, except Stammer and St.Louis, but in no relation to the hype he would get as a member of a big market team).
Even if he doesn't pan out and "only" becomes and average second liner, I wouldn't do the trade. It's not worth trading 3 guys that bring thoughness and most likely over 130 points for one guy with ~ 80

Sorry for the Lecavalier words, they don't really make my standpoint clear. VL4 isn't better than Vanek, BUT he is more useful to this Tampa team, than Vanek would be.
