I'm not sure how many people know what type of player Vanek is. The guy has one of the best hand-eye co-ordination in the league, and he scores quite a bit of goals on the PP from deflections. He works hard in front of the net, and is very good at scoring those garbage goals. He's obviously a very good sniper as well, and has a rocket that he loves to unleash, especially in shootouts.

He has a history of injuries (played through an injury all year IIRC), and because of the type of game he plays, his game will be less effective the older he gets. He's not a great skater, and he not exactly a dependable defensive player.

I would never move Kesler for him, but that doesn't make Vanek any less of a very good player. Vanek is exactly the kind of player the Canucks need more of.
