Criticizing his playoff performance is also baseless, as discount his rookie year and he has 18 points in 26 playoff games, very solid especially given the type of teams that the '10 and '11 Sabres were.

I'd take Ovie, Hossa, Parise, or Kane over him at Wing atm. Hall, Yakupov, etc have the potential to become better but aren't atm. Neal, D Sedin, Kessel, Eberle, Nash, Voracek, are definitely not better.
1) Scoring 25 goals a year doesn't make you a top 5 winger.

2) His team may have been bad, but his linemates were average at worst.

3) 18 points in 26 playoff games is not solid.

4) Ovechkin, Hossa, Parise, Kane >>>>> Vanek
Hall, D. Sedin, Kessel, Nash >>> Vanek
Neal, Eberle, Voracek > Vanek
