Well.. hopefully the guy can play LW or hopefully Vanek is coming along with him
Couple things about the bolded...those teams are what is known as "contenders", therefore they can afford to give up a 1st, and the second thing is that the pick would be in the last half of the 1st round, not a top pick like we have had recently. Cant afford to give that up for just 1 year of Vanek, maybe if he signs an extension, but it would have to be a cap friendly contract, not sure if he would do that, probably wouldn't though.
