I think it is clear that Vanek.is seen as a stronger tix draw/ star power by Wang/Snow/Barclays execs.

And it does not sound like Snow felt his team was rebuilding when he added Vanek. Coming off the Pens series, it sounds like Snow expected his team to be a serious playoff contendern
Contenders who want veterans typically give up future picks and prospects to get a proven veteran. What picks and prospects is Snow willing to give up to get a top4 veteran D?
