That's fine because Buffalo would never do that original deal.

You want Vanek? Couturier ++. We don't want Matt Read or Gustaffson. You want our elite players we want your elite trade chips, not your B level prospects and players.

top 10 pick

is damn good value for a 60 point forward making 7 mil and a promising, future top-pairing defenseman who has regressed two consecutive years. Don't overvalue those guys. Both are very good players but FAR from elite and Vanek's cap hit is HUGE.
first off Vanek averages 68 points a season. So he isn't a "60" point winger. Second, he averages 35 goals a year and has the 10th highest gpg among active players. It's funny you berate Vanek and try to belittle his talent and production yet you want to trade for him . This trade proposal is terrible. You want Vanek and Myers? Start with Couturier and Brayden Schenn and keep adding . Don't even say Schenn and Couturier are worth more then Vanek AND Myers because they are not even close.
