The problem is... i don't expect Vanek to look over his shoulder, verify whether there is someone better qualified to take the responsibility.
This is about character. There are plenty of "non fighter" star players who don't think twice in that scenario... Crosby is an example. There are MANY others.
Vanek is supposed to see what happens, and react. How he reacts is a reflection on his character.
Nate Gerbe would've gone beserk and got his ass kicked... but he has character.
The outcome of the situation is meaningless to me. The story it tells about the character of the team is what bothers me.
We need to purge as much of that personality as possible from this team
