Staals scored 50 points once. Vaneks career low is 48 (rookie year and was getting 14 mins a game) and he averages 68 points a season along with 35 goals.7 straight 25+ goal seasons makes Vanek an elite goal scorer. He will bring back a lot.

If Vanek is dealt (I hope he isn't but there's a chance he will be) you can bet anything Regier will get a massive return for Vanek. Think Mike Richards type return. Elite prospect + good young top 9 winger/top 4 dman and a 1st round pick. If that isn't matched then I re-sign Vanek and be content having a top 10 goal scorer for the next 6 years.
