It would be nice to see Vanek hit 40 goals again this year. He's done it twice during his seven year NHL career.
The former 1st round (5th overall) pick has had at least five game winning goals in each of the past six seasons, including nine during the 2007-2008 season.
He's contributed all-around, including on the power play and in the shootout. During the 2008-2009 sesaon, Vanek netter 20 power play goals, the most of his career. He also has 16 shootout goals on 48 shots, a 33%. The around the world shot seemed to be his favorite move, but recently he's been ripping slap shots from just above the hash marks.
