It doesn't make much sense to compare stats like that with players from vastly different eras. I believe you have the points and goals for 1998 reversed. The fact that Satan scored 40 that year during the dead-puck era and was still only 7th in the league in scoring says it all. Look at the list of players he was among that year. Selanne, Lindros, Jagr, Sakic etc. That's not to say that in 06 when Vanek was 5th he was in the company of slouches but I just don't feel that Lecavalier, Heatley, 37 year old Selanne, Jason Blake and Simon Gagne stack up.

With that said once again i feel both players are very close and I wouldn't take either.
