Consistancy is what we need. Not 170 pt pace for 25% of the year, them poof!
Again.... Good luck with that. Vanek is one of the most consistent goal-scorers in the league. One of only 4 active players with 25+ goals in each of his first 7 seasons, and looks like he may make it 8 in spite of the shortened season. Only the truly elite players have the kind of consistency you're talking about (ie: Crosby, Stamkos), and even then they have some slumps. What good teams have is better depth (and D) than Buffalo to keep them competitive when their star scorers are slumping. Our next best winger outside of that top line is Stafford probably, who barely made it to 50 points last year.
