Vanek is an overrated, and almost completely 1 dimensional.

Vanek is a 60 pt 1 dimensional player
Dubinsky is a 45 pt complete player

trade wise, considering they are both signed for 2 more years, and Dubinsky costs 3 million less... they are practically equals.

Adding in Boyle makes it a near landslide in Buffalo's favor

Over the last 3 years, Dubinsky has scored 18 less points per season then Vanek... in place of those 18 points... he kills penalties, wins faceoffs, hits like a truck, and costs 3 million less
Right, practically equals. Get back to me when Rick Nash is traded for Dubinsky and Boyle.

Lots of players kill penalties and hit and they're obviously important. But there's a reason players like Vanek are paid substantially more (not to the level Vanek is paid though as that's an offer sheet anomaly). There's also a reason the Rangers would want Vanek, because if they had added a player like him before the Devils series, they might've won the Stanley Cup. That's why they're desperately trying to trade for Rick Nash, and that's why they would shoot Dubinsky's mother in the face as part of the trade.
