I really don't think Vanek will be gone in two years. I realize his contract will be up, but I have a feeling Darcy will find a fair number for him at which he'll stay with the club. I think Lindy is hard on him because he feels he can be a "great" player, but so far has only been a "very good" player. I also think the quotes that came out this off-season, from guys like Roy and Boyes, may get Lindy to change his tune and ease up on the guys, if even just a little bit. I also think he's just not the kind of guy that wants a forward playing 22-24 minutes per night because of the drag it will put on their skating with his insistence on forwards playing a solid 2-way game.
