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

From what I've seen the last 10 days, Vanek is one of the missing pieces. Galchenyuk might grow into that role 2 or 3 years down the line but will the Habs still have all the other pieces?
Vanek fell into the Habs' lap. I imagine he's starting to see the perks that come with winning in the Mecca of hockey. Would he rather play on a line with Patches for the next 4-5 years or disappear in Minneapolis? We'll see, I guess.
If we want to keep Vanek we've got to get rid of Briere somehow or the math won't work.
