No - god no, he's not available. He's as close to an untouchable as you're going to find in the NHL. I can't imagine any package that would pry him loose - at least, no package that any GM would be willing to actually pay.
He isn't available, but anything can be had for the right price. Obviously any package would have to include Vanek, but I don't imagine Buffalo has enough.
There top 10 players under 24 plus a ton of draft picks, then we will talk and maybe something will happen. Im not a big Gaborik guy but even I know he is a great player as far as creating his own offense and on this team that ability is something we cant afford to lose, so Vanek and a lot more is what it would take. It also doesnt help you that we have Harding waiting in the wings so Ryan Miller isnt that appealing round here, although I think he is very talented
