I'm starting to become of the opinion that we don't only need a scoring winger, but we are also desperately missing someone that can play in front of the net. Our offense is a lot of shooting from the point and last year it worked because we had Smyth and Handzus who could play well around the net. This was especially highlighted by Jim Fox yesterday showing how, while Brown was standing there, Sanford was never really screened. Anyone can stand there, not everyone can actually effectively screen, tip, and slam home rebounds while being mobbed around the crease.

These are all things Vanek (as a few people have discussed earlier in this thread) does especially well, although that is trade proposal I don't know if I'm willing to attempt and get flamed for.
