Although Thomas Vanek remains one of the top trade chips on the market, it can he hard to judge what's out there, as GMs may be trying to downgrade him publicly to lower his value. Some believe that Vanek will be headed out West -- possibly to the Ducks, Kings or Sharks -- but there's also a chance that an Eastern Conference contender ponies up to bring him in from Long Island.
