I think he is the best player for PEI with 16 years old power foward Alexis Pépin after three playoffs games. Vance is even playing sometimes with Jimmy Oligny (the number 1 d-man) which is a good new since they have very good depth on defence with Tomas Pavelka and Alex Micallef. He is better on 5-on-5 than on the special units because he doesn't have great offensive skills. I mean, he is a fluid skater and he has a good first pass but he doesn't have a high-level offensive awareness. Also, he is good on the penalty-kill but probably not enough to be a specialist. Ultimately, I think he is going to be a shut-down defenceman in the AHL. I don't know if he has what it takes to be a legit NHLer, but we'll see next season with the Texas Stars. Anyway, like I said, right now, he is a very solid defender.
