People that "check out" don't get pissed when they mess up. Vanek is still pissy with himself when something doesn't go right.
I would argue that he's constantly had a pissy demeanor since the deadline, probably because of factors we are left guessing about i.e. having a sit-down with Terry, Darcy and Co. The fact that he's not playing well and is battling nagging injuries (like every year) only adds to his frustration.
If I were to venture a guess, I'd say Vanek knows it's becoming more and more pointless to stake any hopes for the playoffs this year. Knowing that even if we do grab the 8th seed that we'll take a first round exit is a tough pill to swallow. I don't think Vanek wants to be here at all anymore.
