Don't forget that the cap is heading southward by $6 mil. Everyone agrees that he's a great player, but picking up a $7 mil contract is a $13 mil swing from this year (combined decrease and cap hit). That may not be very easy and will most likely drive the price down. Plus, Vanek won't be the only name out there.
