There it is. Everyone is so worried about wasting Craig's money.

Vanek's true value is probably a little over what Pominville just took in ($28M/5-years I believe?) in a vacuum. So, would it really matter if he takes in $7M per year? That might seem like a heavy overpay...

But compare that to paying $3-4M for a stay-at-home guy who ends up disappointing. Someone like that ends up eating a three or more years of a roster spot that could have been filled by a youngster on a rookie deal or a cheap veteran? Hurts 10x more.
