The issue here isn't the price paid (Getting Vanek without giving up Strome or Reinhart or Pulock was a great move). It's that:
1)If he doesn't re-sign
2)Isles trade a strength for a strength and don't address their more important needs
3)Vanek is a known band-aid boy
4)Anything at least 1 playoff round win
At what point does Nabokov start to break down again? Not much help in the wings on that front, and they've now expended a valuable asset (1st rounder) in order to fix something that wasn't broke.
He will be a great player for them, but there is a gigantic risk involved here.
