What I'm saying is that people that are trying to say what Vanek's trade value is or isn't will have a hard time finding a good comparable deal because it's rare for guys like Vanek to get moved unless there are issues involved that aren't in play with Vanek.

Tkachuk
for
Handzus (good tough 3rd line center at the time)
Nagy (overachieving 2nd line scorer at the time)
Taffe (disappointing prospect at the time)

Vanek's effective trade value might be considerably lower than Pominville's, because of the caphit. Yes, it's just for one more season, but several teams already have trouble to fit their current roster under next year's cap. That's one more reason, why I'd trade (and trade for) Pominville before Vanek. There might be more buyers, which will drive up his price.

While Vanek would still net the bigger return, his loss is more severe than the departure of Pominville.

So if you subtract the loss of either player, you end up better trading Pom than Van, because there are more possible takers for Poms, which boosts his value.
