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.
ROR + 1st + prospect. Slide Ennis back to wing on top line and ROR to center where Ennis is. You get younger, slash salaries and pick up a pick and a prospect for the future. Let's be honest, Vanek will cool off in a big way pretty soon. It's what he does. In the meantime, you get better defensively and worse offensively.
Edit: they won't give ROR the money, so they probably wouldn't want to shell it out to Vanek.
