I currently have a pending trade where I ship fluery/b.richards and i receive toews/pominville. I currently own Vanek. I received another trade offer where I give up niemi/vanek and receive hossa/lundqvist. Sell niemi/vanek high? Its tough b/c my pending trade helps my team offense which is what I wanted. This new trade makes me want to pull out my hair.

yeah I already traded Fluery/B. Richards for pominville/toews. I had Fluery Quick and Niemi with the idea to trade Niemi for offensive help. But I like the sharks this year. Vokoun also made me want to ship Fluery. He's the best backup the pens have seen in a couple years. If Fluery struggles at all Vokoun could see more time.
But after that trade...giving me pominville/vanek combo, plus toews, I really have a nice balance. Hossa (being a RW) would mean I would be weak in the LW slot. Yeah King Henrik would be nice, but I dont know if I could afford to give up Vanek in a shortened season.
