I don't see what the problem with going "all in" is. What would be the benefit of standing pat as opposed to signing a top-6 forward in UFA?

Or if we decide to go the trade route, (e.g. trade the equivalent of 3 1sts for Vanek), our roster will be set to be a legit contender for at least the next 3 years. During that time we'll acquire more prospects to replace what we've given up.

Our team has significant trouble scoring, and it would be bad asset management to let the Sedins waste away the last of their prime with a team that can't make it out of the 1st round. We need an impact top-6 winger if we want any shot at the cup any time soon.
