Basically before Satan's disgusting 2003 season where he gave zero ****s and alienated himself from fans and teammates he was better at almost every facet of the game than Vanek. He molded himself into a above average two way player. Something I don't see Vanek ever doing. Vanek to me just has too much trouble meshing with his line mates, nothing is ever "right" for him. At some point you have to stop blaming Lindy Ruff and realize that Vanek is just not that versatile. Something I considered Satan to be.

With that said they're both fairly close. If I was doing an expansion draft I wouldn't touch either player though. Maybe that's just me.
You're describing Satan with that? Really? The only way describing Satan as a two-way player works is if the offensive zone is one way and the bench is the other. In that case, yes, Satan was a fantastic two-way player.
