    If there was a romance novel with Shea Weber on the front, I would definitely buy it.

    It's not that Vanek was an obvious bad move, but if you KNOW the guy won't resign, then giving a prospect AND a 2nd risks stalling a rebuild, which is what we were talking about.

    Very true. The missing 2nd's from 14-16 draft years did hold us back in terms of our probability to hit with our prospects.

    I think there is a trend of NHL GM's starting to not trade 1st and 2nd round picks for rentals. It becomes a mistake more often than not.

    Hopefully with experience comes wisdom. He was overeager last time around after a fluke season. He needs to do the opposite, be patient and keep building on the young core for a couple years

    A 5th rounder was used to acquire weaver
    King cost a conditional 4th that we reacquired as part of trade that sent torry mitchell to LA last year.
    Mitchell cost a 7th rounder and jack nivens who can't cut it in the ECHL
    Ott cost a 6th rounder.

    So all told a 5th, a 6th, a 7th and an ineffective ECHLer in Nivens for 3 seasons of Mitchell, 2 plus seasons of mitchell, one goal from King and a couple of fights from Ott - seems about fair- none of those picks have amounted to anything.

    Vanek rental was cheap for most desired deadline acquisition that year, A bust in colberg and a second. we got a 5th back. Vanek had 10 pts in that playoff run when Therrien refused to use him- not bad IMO
