you would think something so mind boggling would led to atleast a minimal amount of research

Fair enough, but Vanek has never been given ice time under Ruff. 16-17 minutes tops. He's been pretty consistent since he was on our third line in 06-07. I personally feel he's our best player and he needs more ice time. Hell Chris Kunitz sees more ice time than Vanek.

This might be worthy of its own thread actually, but I thought it was interesting considering some of the complaints earlier on in the year that Vanek only scores meaningless Satan-esque goals.

But Sabres.com just posted an article about Vanek's contributions this year in clutch moments: http://sabres.nhl.com/club/news.htm?...id=DL|BUF|home

While hes on pace to approach his career average for goals this season, Vanek has also displayed a knack for coming up big at key times. Of his 18 goals, nine have come either with the game tied or the Sabres trailing by one and seven have come in the third period or overtime. In addition, Buffalo is 10-3-2 in games in which Vanek scores a goal.
