Point to an actual trade, post lockout, that would demonstrate your position...
the only time bluechip prospects get moved in trade is when it's for similarly aged talent (EJ, Shat), or young veterans locked up LONG term (carter, richards)
There is a difference between talent and trade value... Vanek has the talent, but his trade value includes his contract/UFA.
