Because two of the previous three years before this one, he didn't crack 30, and I bet he's a 25 goal scorer again on this squad next year.

Sitting around and hoping for something better while your assets depreciate is a fool's game. If Vanek sucks again next year, we're all going to be sitting here crying about why we got nothing for him while he still had value and before he walked away for nothing.
The teams that will more than likely be looking to add someone like Vanek do not have the cap space to have him on the roster for an entire year. As of now unless a very young team with lots of cap space decides they're going for it Vanek will have the same or more value at the trade deadline.
