Trading prime-aged elite players is kinda rare in today's NHL.

Usually only happens when the said player burns bridges with the old team, or his GM is named Paul Holmgren.

On Vanek&Miller, no point in trading for that duo right now. We're not contenders and surely not 1 or 2 pieces away from contending. Dealing away the youth for two up-coming UFAs would be a massive mistake, let alone when we're talking about these two, Vanek reportedly wants to return to Minnesota (where he spent his junior career) and Miller wants to get closer to the west coast (because his wife lives in LA).
