Last year combined they scored 70 points compared to Ryans 57.

But I'm sure now you'll say it doesn't count since that stance goes against your guy )

There's no denying Ryan is better then Stafford but he isn't THAT much better. Stafford also gets 1:30 less a game the last 2 years compared to Ryan and you know, the whole line mate thing.
over the last 3 years..
Dubinsky averages 20 goals per 82 games
Vanek averages 30 goals per 82 games

So I guess per your logic... you'd rather have Dubinsky++ over vanek

The difference between Vanek and Dubisnky is NOT Stepan+1st+Hagelin+Dubinsky type deals, not at all. I'd take JT Miller and a 1st along with Dubinsky, which is more then fair.

Bobby Ryan is a better hockey player then Thomas Vanek.

Going out on the trade boards and making comparisons of Ryan to Stafford makes you look like just another HF homer.
