It sounds crazy, but remember Ryan Miller a few years ago, he was unreal. Called the best goalie in the NHL. At the time we could have gotten almost anything we wanted in a trade. Why trade the best goalie in the world? Well if you look at his career he really wasn't the best, he just had a great year. Thats where I am with Vanek. Is Vanek just having a great year or is he one of the most dangerous scorers in the NHL now?
Its either sell now or pay him a ridiculous contract again. IMO we sell while his stock is the highest it ever will be. Get the rebuilding blocks we need. This team isn't very close.
I don't think that's the best move, but I'd be willing to have a discussion about it. What, hypothetically, would you expect to get for Vanek that would make sense for the team?
