I don't see why Vanek wouldn't be a possibility to extend with the Oilers. He signed with the team once before and the team is much more interesting now than it was back then.
I think it was more the $50 million dollars he was offered, and not the huge interest in playing for us.

Vanek probably isnt a guy we could afford to extend with extensions coming up for RNH, Yak, and Schultz as well as current cap hits of Hall and Eberle. We would likely have to lowball him and he would test free agency. Vanek is minimum $6 million on the open market.
