Do we trade Thomas Vanek at the deadline or do we re-sign him?

Thomas Vanek coming off a hattrick night and an assist to add to that. 


Thus far: 35GP 10g 12a 22pts. On pace for 50 points and is a UFA at the end of the season. 1 year 2M contract. Very enticing for playoff teams looking for depth although he can be quite a streaky player. Benning brought him in to be a stop gap however at the end of the day, despite Vanek being a pretty solid player for us, I'd still try and get a solid return out of him at the deadline. 


I would think he fetches us at least a 2nd round pick. Tampa could use a scoring 3rd line RW. Tampa's 2nd rounder and a prospect. Maybe a team would be willing to part ways with a 1st rounder. 


Very interested in your thoughts.

I'd wait until January 1st is when he is eligible to sign a new contract so if he decides to sign with us for another year, I'd say, keep him but if he doesn't sign by trade deadlines, then sell for a good return.  The same for Gudbransen, if he signs with us, great, if not, trade him for any return we could get.

Trade him!!!!!!


Vanek + Hutton to TO for Lillgren and 2nd 

Doubt Toronto gives up their future top defenseman for a rental and a 5th/6th defenseman. Forget the 2nd round pick.
