Vanek has said the reason he wants out of Buffalo is because they are in rebuilding mode. Why would he be excited to come to Nashville and sign an extension?

We can not risk squandering assets for what will likely be a 1-yr rental with Vanek. We've taken that risk too many times with impending free agents (Suter, Hamhuis, Forsberg, Gaustaud, Witt, to name a few) with little-to-nothing to show for it. It's a big reason why we are where we are. Can't risk it again.
