Thomas Vanek isn't the dominant force we expected him to be. (Update: sick/hurt?)

We haven't had to see what this team would look like without Subban, but I imagine it looking an awful lot like how looked in previous years without Markov in the line up. Our defense corps after those two, IMO, is abysmal.
You are looking at it the wrong way.
It is not nor should it be an either or Vanek or Subban. It should be a concerted effort to sign both.
The Habs with Subban and minus Vanek has been an average team incapable of winning a Cup.
The Habs with Subban and Vanek take a huge step forward in winning a Cup. And if it takes giving Vanek more than Subban per year, then so be it. Vanek is a very high impact player......more so than Subban because of the generation of additional offense....one of our biggest struggles earlier in the season.
