Edit: I'm not sure if Grigs counts, but he's up to 43pts (23g 20a) in 23 games this season.
Agree, especially on Vanek. Dude is 7th in the league in goal scoring over the past 7 seasons. Until he ran into injury trouble last year, he was on pace to pot around 40. This with Lindy Ruff only giving him ~15 minutes of ES ice time a game.
I'm less certain about Myers' future than you seem to be, but I do have a hard time believing he won't be a top 20-30 defenseman in the NHL even if he doesn't quite hit his ceiling and become an elite/franchise player.
