Which are completely useful even if you don't trade them. Besides which, if Darcy Regier is the kind of guy who thinks he's smarter than the market (which I think he does), he values more opportunities to prove it with mid round picks.
And don't forget that neither Vanek nor Miller is necessarily going anywhere. Last we heard from him was "we'd like to re-sign them both."
