    What do you have to say about Vanek now?

    All you naysayers of Vanek (and you know who you are so don't deny it!)

    Lets see...
    you said that he's lazy
    you chewed him up and spit him out
    you said he couldn't score

    Well what do you have to say now he's got 31goals not to mention he had 43 goals last season

    Re: What do you have to say about Vanek now?

    hey had one good month plus one good game.

    Going into tonight, he had 2 points in the last 9 games.

    you're living in the moment and not taking his full season into account. BTW, unless he gets 12 points in the next 8 games, he's BEHIND where he was last year. Considering he's only averaged .42 points per game, it's highly unlikely that he's going to triple that and average 1.5 ppg over the last 8. He's supposed to be the new leader, but he's behind where he was last year- instead of taking charge, he's regressing.

    Please think before posting next time.

    I say if he didn't tank the first half of the season, maybe we wouldn't be on the outside looking in right now.

    I was at the game tonight. Other than finally living up to his big contract and earning his money in the third period he was absolutely pitiful just like the rest of the team for two thirds of the game so I wouldn't let your nipples get too hard over him.

    Re: What do you have to say about Vanek now?

    Why do people have to say things like this? The guy has been a big disapointment this year. All money aside and what he should be doing, he has to be better than he was this season. I don't think it is wrong for people to want big things from Vanek.

    He's a streaky scorer who will give you games like last night. But not every night.
    Should have known, way back in 1960 when we drafted Richie Lucas Number 1, that this would be a long, hard ride. But who could have known it would be THIS bad?

    For the sake of argument, Op, how many "good months" did he have last year? It's only fair.

    Ovechkins worse night is about par to how we usually see Vanek. Vanek is a dull bulb so far that flickers bright sometimes but then fades out all over again.

    We should have taken the draft picks.

    He is very Satan-ish.. shows up for a quarter of the season, while disappearing for the rest

    Vanek actually got BETTER as the season went on last year. I remember I thought he was a weak link at the beginning of the season, but after the new year he went on a tear.

    This year, he started slow and when he heated up in February, I had some hope for him. But then he cooled off again in March. Like several people already said, he's streaky and he doesn't put in a full season. At times he doesn't put in a full game.

    To be fair, it's not entirely his fault. The FO is trying to use him like a Drury or an Ovechkin or a Crosby/Malkin and he's simply not that caliber of player. But LW is still dead wrong- Vanek is behind where he was last year and has not stepped up the way his contract and role on the team suggests he should.

    Re: What do you have to say about Vanek now?

    Someone told me this stat about Vanek today. 17 of his goals were against teams that are not currently in the playoffs. I am not trying to say anything negative or positive, just thought that was a little interesting.

    That makes sense. About half of goals and about half of the teams make the playoffs.

    You folks are nuts. The Sabres are a top knotch club and there is not a whole lot of reasonable comparison between Vanek and Satan.
