Don't underestimate how a bare FA market will drive his price up.
A Staal extension was in the bag for Carolina, though. I could see a huge return if Vanek indicates a willingness to sign an extension with the acquiring team. Otherwise, I don't see us getting a top-10 pick + solid prospect defenseman + excellent 3C.
