The reason why vanek is a ppg player at the moment is that he doesn`t have to play with roy right now. He has gotten the puck more and vanek has created more offense for himslef.and his linemates.

Vanek carries vanek since january. Don't tell me that pommers carries vanek because thats just not true.
I don't think Josh is saying Pominville has carried Vanek, he's saying that playing with Pominville has helped Vanek, which I think would be hard to argue against. Having a solid winger like Pominville on his line that doesn't need the puck all the time (i.e. Vanek can have the puck more) has been great for Vanek to step up and control the game more. Vanek's success hasn't been solely because of Pominville, but it certainly has helped.

So was anyone expecting everyone to play better when Roy when down with injury?

I said this before and I will say it again, Vanek is on his game without Roy.

Ennis-Roy-Stafford
Vanek-Boyes-Pommer

Next year?

I think You have to give Vanek the puck more for him to produce and Roy usually controls the puck way more on Vanek's line so why not split them up and get two solid lines with a player who can be dangerous in the pass zone. Boyes also proves that he can so far finish pretty well in front of the net so if Vanek keeps up his dangerous passing he has been having lately and has someone finish for him I think that would be a solid top 6 next year

So you're both trying to make a point with my statement here.

You're saying that vanek has the puck more now. So he can't do that when roy is on his line because roy has the puck the most time when he is on ice.

So it helps vaneks point-production more when roy is out. And that has nothing to do with pommers imo.
