Comes back to that question of which is more important.... 50 goals and 80 points or 70 assists and 100 points.
Vanek is a better goal scorer but Kane is definitely going to score more points.
Right now the sabres need a #1 center like Kane to go with our #1 winger, so can I have both?
Well Kane is a RW not a center, Toews is the center on that line. They're really not comparable players in that Vanek is better able to impose his will with his size and strength and gets most of his goals in the dirty fashion while Kane is all flash and dash. Both are great players and any team would love to have them. Though Vanek will consistently score more goals and at least now plays a better all around game, I'll take Kane for his potential as he's on track to be a consistent 100pt player.
