Expect the Red Wings to inquire about Thomas Vanek from the Isles as a rental.

I don't think vanek would fit here...

yes hes a goal scorer which is EXACTLY what the forward group needs, but hes a soft floater who isnt responsible defensively at all.

He's also looking for a huge contract and I think signing him to a long contract would kill any team

Pass. I agree with what has been repeated in other threads. This guy intends on testing the FA market at the end of the season. No way would I give up any player that is important to our future (Gus, Tatar, Jurco, Mantha, Dekeyser, etc.) for some guy that's just going to bolt as soon as some morons throw a $8M/year contract at him.

Considering he played for the Golden Gophers, has family there and Heatley's 7.5 million is coming off the books next season, I'd say it's a pretty good chance that he signs in Minnesota next season. No reason to risk moving assets for a guy who seems to be heading somewhere else.

meh, parise has been under performing since signing that huge deal, he was always a bit overrated anyways. Koivu is no sauperstar but hes good enough coyle i know nothing about, but judging by his stats isn't anything special, Granland same deal, more assists, Pominville is still pretty good

If Vanek went to Minnesota they'd have a darn good top 6

Parise - Koivu - Vanek

Coyle - Granlund - Pominville

Yet somehow, with all the great players they have, they'll still manage to mess up their season, because, well that's what Minnesota teams do :lol:

“I don’t envision us trading away players who could be part of our future,” general manager Ken Holland said. “Those are the players other teams will be asking about.” Hopefully so!

I really don`t get all these trade rumours concerning Gaborik or Vanek..it`s like some sportswriters just sit at their desks, bored, with nothing to write about, because seriously, is there a sane GM in the NHL that would brag about a trade in the making before it`s done, ignoring the chance that someone decides to trump his offer? And then they just make stuff like this up, without even thinking about the cap crunch of the teams involved..
