He's a Satan/Jagr hybrid.
His play has an economy of movement like Satan and he strikes suddenly, but he has the size to make Jagr-like power moves.

He reads the play well and seems to have a very good feel for how it'll develop so he doesn't have to skate around a lot like other players trying to be in the right place at the right time. Vanek seems like an ideal player to play the point on the powerplay. He's a good passer that can hit the open man, and he's an opportunist who will jump into the hole to get prime scoring chances. All they have to do is make sure they have a forward who will fall back when Vanek goes down low, and the Sabres have several that ilk.
