I imagine they'll want to surround all that high-priced talent with cheap talent on ELC's; players like Granlund and Dumba, for example.
Its a starting point from the Sabres side. The main guy I want is Granlund.
Basically the Wild get a chance at a cup the next 2 years, Vanek then replaces heatley on the cap. Heatley is 3 years older, so the WIld get a little younger. Maybe the Wild could move Heatley to another team.
Parise and Vanek give that hometown excitement. I mean the Sabres would be trading their best player here. I think getting a couple top prospects is very fair. But again, I am willing to go without Dumba.
