Ice time in this context can potentially be misleading, mainly because not all ice time is equal. Specifically SH (where scoring is much less likely) vs ES vs PP. Vanek might still be low or at the bottom when the time is broken down, but it would give a clearer picture--a player who plays significant SH time should be expected to score during those minutes. (A quick glance at the list and it's probably only a few players who would be affected).
