Agreed. I wouldn't do a straight up, however something along the lines of...

to

RW Thomas Vanek ($7.143M [$2M Retained])
2013 1st RND pick (16th)

to

C/W Alexander Burmistrov ($1.5M RFA)
C/W Patrice Cormier ($854K RFA)
2013 1st RND pick (13th)
conditional 2014/15 3rd RND pick (If Vanek re-signs)

... I would do in a second.
