He's a great player when healthy for sure, and his playmaking ability actually doesn't get enough praise, but honestly, I'd be surprised if he plays until he's 35.
Just so we are all on the same page.

Vanek has played in 94% of his teams games during his career. He's missed more than 10 games in any one season twice during that time.

09-10 when he missed 11 games
12-13 when he missed 10 games

Of the 37 games he's missed in his career due to injury, more than half have come in 2 seperate seasons.

Vanek is anything but an injury concern
