Not really a good comparison, Hossa is a dominant two way player while Vanek brings pretty much no defensive value. Vanek is less Hossa lite than Cammalleri++.

Seriously. This is sad.
Well and I would have figured that it was common knowledge Vanek is a one dimensional player, he isn't a two way guy and he's not suddenly going to become one at 30 years old. You'd think this fanbase would know how valuable that kind of player can be in the spring, what with a deep playoff run not too long ago on the back of goaltending and Cammalleri getting red hot.
