Just say you want out. Think of Darcy, he has a 1st line player that may want to go, but not really forcing anything, he may want to stay if the young players develop around him quickly.

It puts Darcy in a tough spot IMO. He will never get value for Vanek, maybe a 2nd line player and prospects/picks. So Darcy might be thinking keep Vanek and hope Hodgson and/or Grigorenko break out and Vanek wants to re-sign.

To each their own, but I think you're reading a bit too much into Vanek's comments. To be honest, I have no problem with anything he said. I also do not think he will be an issue in the lockerroom if he is there to start the season.

I would like to see how this thread would have gone, had the full quote(s) been used in the opening message.
