Neal definitely has the pedigree. Eberle may not have a full history, but has shown he is already better than Vanek. Voracek is still breaking out, but is arguably better than Vanek now and definitely will be in the future. In 6 years Vanek could only hope to hold Voracek's jock. He'll be looking to do that as soon as next year.

You are such a homer it's not even funny.
Vanek doesn't amount anywhere near Hall, Kessel and Nash. You could maybe argue Hall, but it's still far off. Voracek has been a plus player twice, and Vanek has only been a plus player 3 times despite playing 3 more seasons than Voracek. Voracek beats Vanek skill wise with exception to their shots, and he plays with a lot more physicality than Vanek. This would be the most arguable comparison, but Vorack > Vanek.
