That said, I doubt the Wild will be the highest offer. I would bet their offer tops out at 7-7.5. If Vanek comes to Minnesota, he is probably leaving money on the table to do so.

I'm looking at Kessel as a comparison, who is both 5 years younger and playing better at the time of the extension, who got 8 x 8.

Vanek's already had a big pay day, so I think that a long term deal at 7-7.5m would be reasonable, especially if a team gives him a full NTC(and Gillis likes to hand them out like candy) and the full 7-8 years.

I sure hope not. I see Vanek as nothing more than a huge anchor around the Wild's neck, with his declining skills and likely absurd contract demands.

This Wild fan is NOT INTERESTED.
