If Vanek would talk about a 4-5 year deal id be interested. It would probably mean paying him anywhere from 7.5-8.5M
Yeah, some good points brought up here. I'm worried about him being at the point that his body's going to start breaking down. He's managed to steer clear of the injury bug for the most part, but he's also a player with more than just finesse to his game, and that definitely takes a toll when guys start to hit his age. I agree that I probably look at going about 5 years at the most due to the above concerns.
