Yeah, you simply can't add it that way. Also consider you have to measure how much better Vanek would have been than the guy whose minutes he was taking. So Vanek takes minutes from a 25 goal guy, who gets bumped down and takes minutes from a 15 goal guy, who gets bumped down and takes minutes from a 5 goal guy, and all three of those guys now score slightly less, and in short there's no way to add Vanek's offensive input.
