IF he develops, Forsberg might someday be as good as Vanek... maybe.


I would say the chances of Forberg scoring 30 goals in any of the next three seasons is low, whereas Vanek scoring 30 is almost guaranteed

Forsberg would be VERY hard to part with, but if he could get us 5 years of Vanek, thats the kind of deal you can live with.
And if Forsberg pans out, Vanek will be long retired when Forsberg is in his prime. I know what you're saying but we got a steal out of the Erat deal and it would be foolish to give that up now. It's a catch-22 situation at best. Vanek could be great for us. Forsberg could fail. It could also turn out the other way. Poile didn't acquire Forsberg to peddle him off this quickly.
