Problem with a bidding war is Darcy Regier is under pressure also at that point, so when does he pull the trigger? Plus there will be others on the market.

Plus injury risk. I just dont like trading Vanek at the deadline. There are other risks as well.

I say if re-signing him is out of the question then take on salary, pay some of Vanek's salary, and make the trade happen.

Regier did say taking back salary isnt something they want to do right now, so that is probably what is holding up a trade.
