IMO there's similarities to him, Gaborik and Nash.

So yeah I think we could probably more than afford to bring back both Girardi and Stralman if we wanted and depending on the term I don't think that would be a bad way to go. At least we'll have an idea of what we're getting and we won't be overpaying for the Grabovski's and Moulson's.
Problem is Vanek is a much better playmaker than both of them put together. He is a very under appreciated player in the league. 40-40. Guy.
