I haven't read the article yet, but I don't think trading for Vanek was a bad move by Snow. Isles have a deep prospect pool and a pretty young team. At this point, they're getting to end of the rebuild and are starting to get into a win now phase so a mid-1st round pick doesn't do that much for the Isles. Moulson wasn't exactly playing at his best either and although Isles fan liked him, he was still considered a liability defensively at times. Although Moulson would've most likely re-signed, he was still a ufa at the end of the year so the trade is pretty much a 1st round pick for an upgrade over Moulson. At least that's my opinion of the trade.
