Exactly. Im pretty much fighting a battle on my own in the Vanek thread on the main forums, but the asking price from some of them is just ridiculous.

First the one guy proposed 2013 1st + 2014 1st + Top prospect + decent roster player.

All for 1 year of Vanek.

THEN, he proposed this to a Nashville fan:

Vanek + 2013 1st(Minnys, so 15-20) + McNabb for NSH 1st(Top 5 guaranteed) + Josi + another decent forward + 2nd.

I mean if I were a Nashville fan I wouldn't even be giving up Josi for 1 year of Vanek. I would say Josi + 2nd could be fair value, but give Josi's potential and age I wouldn't move him at all.

Pretty outrageous what they are asking for a guy who is a UFA in a year, a Top 5 paid forward in the game(Yet not even a top 10 producer) and a guy who more or less wants out of Buffalo at this stage.
