Yeah, I guess i've just been thinking off some of the chuckers he's been doing recently. Anyone have any idea what is up with Vanek the last couple weeks? doesn't seem to be the same as early season.
2 points since Dec 30, no multi point games since dec 16. Something is amiss.
I think besides every other team in the league realizing that he and Pommers are the only ones who can consistently score and are keying up against them -- he does tend to have hot starts, trail off a bit, then come back strong as the season finishes.
He also takes quite a beating throughout the season yet typically plays through it, and this one is no different. I'm sure he's thankful for the all star break.
