A 1st and a 2nd to upgrade Moulson to Vanek, and have an excellent shot at re-signing an elite forward? I'd say that's a great deal for the Isle.
What makes you think they have an "excellent shot" at re-upping Vanek at the end of the year? Vanek and his agent had no idea this trade was coming and obviously have had no discussion with the Isles before and his agent stated right afterwards that he wasn't going to talk contract at all during the season.
If they don't re-up Vanek, this trade will be judged a fail, barring the Isles going deep into the post-season.
