I won’t spend too much time talking about Vanek, because I don’t see him as someone the Penguins will likely pursue. He has continually been available as a rental over the past few seasons, and the Penguins have never showed any interest before. However, Vanek is still a very talented player who can add instant offense to any contender’s left wing. With only a $2M cap hit, Vanek won’t break the bank either.
