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

I have a hard time believing he just doesn't care
He did score two and it should have been enough in game two.
All good points: I wonder:
Is he there in the offensive zone, open and in shooting position , is the passing lane open when he is, why no puck for a shot or distribution? Is the defense keying on him? Assuming he is open a lot, and he is, and only averaging 3 shots a game, none of which are grade a scoring chances, what do you think it is? How many instances of three quick passes between Pathes DD and TV have you seen in the playoffs so far?
Does not care . lol They all care...a lot
I wonder what it is like learning to play off wing after seven years on the other wing? I wonder what I would do if I was playing without a contract knowing I am uninsured and if I blow a knee my family is screwed. I wonder if TV will earn his two mil from the franchise in the playoffs and give it his best when it matters but sometimes, after reading these comments, I wonder if some of these posts being put up by the self avowed " most knowledgable hockey fans in the world" are written by eight year olds.
Some guys get paid to bang, others to play d , some to score, some to make plays happen, and then there is the top 1% that do it all. I wonder which one of those the fans thought they had.If you are paid to score and you do not get the puck in scoring position life can be difficult, ask Patches or TV.
We are playing a team that is so deep their third line center would be our first line center if he played for us.
