Vanek because he is LW.

Hall - RNH - Eberle
Vanek - Gagner - Yakupov
Perron etc.

great poll.

two very similar players.

both very skilled puckhandlers with great shots.

both big guys who aren't physical, both good skaters but not very fast.

both have scored 20+ goals in every year of their careers, and have near identical career paces:

Nash: 35gls/67pts career pace
Vanek: 35gls/68pts career pace


They also share another distinction that's not so great - both have been largely playoff flops. Vanek with only 20pts in 36 career playoff games, Nash with only 8pts in 16 career playof games.


Great comparison - I can't pick one over the other. They're pretty much the same player IMO, just shoot with different hands.

Always thought they were pretty close with Nash being overrated, but I'd take Vanek as a better playmaker.

Vanek. Much smarter hockey player. More difficult to defend. There's not really any strategy that stops a guy from making crazy deflections everywhere from the crease to the high slot.

Better than:
Either individual Sedin at this point.
Backstrom
Zetterberg
E. Staal
Spezza
Now even with Thornton, Kane, Parise, Kopitar

I think it's unfair to label Nash a playoff flop yet. He really only had one playoff run, albeit an atrocious one.

I was thining you could say the same for Vanek. He was 22-23 in his long playoff runs, and the past two oppurtunities he played really well.

Did you just say Nash is better than Zetterberg? Wow. Nash isn't better than any of these guys. Even with Kopitar?!

Really close, the OP should have included tie as a choice. I take Nash just by a hair due to his elite ability to protect the puck.

Vanek has scored 20+ goals in every season of his career. Nash had 17 his rookie year.

Vanek is one of 3 active NHLERS who scored 25+ goals in their first 7 seasons of their career.... Vanek, Ovechkin and Jagr.(Kovalchuk was also part of this group before he retired)

Vanek produces more then Nash in a lot less ice time. Vanek is an elite franchise top 5 LW.

Vanek is elite? What do some people consider elite?

he is Elite.
Vanek last Year without Hurt i think he can win the MRT and make 50 Points easily.38 Games 41 Points last year, with "dead" teammates....
Vanek one of the best PP Goalsscorer in NHL. 2006-2012 he was the ONLY one there have every season 10 or more Goals in PP, last year 9 with hurt and 10 Games missed.
Vanek is Elite and little bit "better" (Playmaker qualitiy) than Nash.

He has had two seasons over a ppg. One of them two points over and the other 3 points over in a shortened season. He has been a second team all star once. He has only been in one all star game, that should say something

and Nash was never named for a All Star TEAM. Thats says nothing, all the same its say nothing how often you named for playing in the ALL STAR GAME. Nash was alone in Columbus -the only Star.
Vanek with Miller-Pominville-Briere-Roy.And Vanek is Austrian he can't have the same Fanbase how Nash have in USA/Kanada.

But looked at who played better and with more productivity hockey,.... for me Vanek.

PP topic.
Vanek is one of the Best PP Goalscorer in the NHL. I think that is sure...that must realize they most Vanek "hater"...
