You miss my point then. ANY team can put together a desirable package. I am not saying that. The Isles traded picks and a good UFA forward for another good UFA forward. I guess they are gambling on Vanek being the missing piece of the puzzle for a Cup run or they think they can re-sign him.

Vanek is not the missing piece here to turn this team into a Cup contender. And he would not re-sign here. So while Poile COULD massively overpay for him, there was no good reason for him to do it at this moment in time.
