Fontaine-Brodziak-Mitchell (get the tough minutes)
Thats a lineup that can roll 4 lines without a problem. And a lineup thats a contender(assuming the kids improve)
that's just like I thought as well and if you lose some of your youngsters is it really that bad. i mean possibility that any of them becomes as good as Vanek is very slim. and after their ELC you can probably sign them fairly cheap with bridge contracts. then you have few seasons more time to figure who you wanna keep plus the cap limit at that point will almost certainly be lot higher than now.
in my opinion it is better to be contender for couple of years than be playoff team for 10 years. I'm not saying Vanek makes Wild automatically a Stanley Cup winner but he would improve Minny a lot. and as we have seen in the cap era you need to sacrifice some players sometimes to win.
