Vanek's situation is up in the air and still questionable. Stastny is apparently asking for a lot on a team with a lot of centers. Gaborik doesn't seem to be a fit here.

I wouldn't write off the chances of them making it to UFA, but at the same time I wouldn't pin all my team improvement hopes on them either.

FTFY. That lack of defensive play is why Edmonton is so g-dawful.

I take it you haven't seen how Ryan Johansen is playing of late.
