They could easily put together a package including some of the following quality assets: 1st/2nd round picks, Michalek (who could be dealt to a 3rd team), Zibanejad, Conachor, Silfverbeg, Ceci.
I'd probably do 1st, Silfverberg, Ceci for Vanek and a pick.

What a lot of people don't realize is that Vanek is not a pure offensive talent. If there's one thing I praise Ruff for it's for at least attempting to teach him a two-way game. Because of that, Vanek's no slouch in any one area of the ice. So his value is just as high if not higher than Pominville's.
