If you can only have him for one year it becomes VERY expensive as he will probably cost a 1st plus a top young player(Beaulieu? Tinordi?).
We have the pieces if you're giving up major assets, which is unlikely. The Sabres are looking for young players, top prospects and picks. Picks we can probably afford to give up, but there's no way MB chokes up one of our big D prospects and a top forward prospect (likely a guy between Collberg, Kristo or Leblanc) on top of picks.

If you think you're not going to have teams line up for Vanek if the asking price is a 1st and a blue chipper, you're out of your mind.
