He won't sign a short term deal, and won't sign a long term deal here, based on his comments. Though I flip flop on this very issue almost daily - like I do in trying to assess Ennis - I am of the current mindset that trading him for the best package around the draft would be best. Ideally, I think I would be okay asking him to sign a longer term deal under the premise of being "the franchise," and I'd be okay with pairing the captaincy to him in such a scenario ... But his days seem numbered.

Scenario: you get offers for Vanek, but they're just a bit less than what you'd want or expect. You also convince Vanek to reup here, but he does so only for a five or six year deal. Do you take the package, which despite being less than what you initially wanted, will still be a nice haul? Or do you sign him for five years during a time period where the team's real chance to contend may come at the end of his time as a dynamic goal scorer?
