Vanek did great last season without a good center, anyways, when he was the one the offense was running through. He's in a slump right now, that's all. He's human.
Your correct, Szczechura is merely a filler. He won't be the center to help elevate the play of Vanek.
Vanek isn't in a slump, he's right where he is at most seasons, in the 60 to 70 point range. If we want him to have the elevated offensive production that everyone, including the NHL pundits and experts know he is capable of, then the center position is most certainly the problem.
