What we got for Vanek / Still having half the cap hit on our hands is just unacceptable:
EDIT: I realize keeping half the salary means only having 1.3 mil on the books for the rest of this season, which doesn't really amount to anything but the cash. I'm more upset becasue teams are looking at Vanek as renting a solid contributor to make a strong push for / make some noise in the postseason. He should bring a second and a third for this year's draft, not a third with a no-name D-Man whom no team has wanted (he's been shipped around a TON).
Yeah, but my "best" wouldn't have been very good either -- Still a pretty bad "best."
