I'm not saying that he wouldn't be able to score with the Preds, just that it is a cause for concern. I think Vanek has around a .75-.85 point per game vs the west in his career but it's a smaller sample size compared to the East.
Not sure if Buffalo had more talent, Sabres were a 1 line team with Pomer and Vanek. Similar coaching style. Talent would be very close before Suter left.

*edit* Vanek has had revolving centres, Hodgson, Roy, Luke Adam, Connolly maybe Hecht and Gaustad for a while
