Thomas Vanek's Offense In Need

12/17/2018 at 5:28pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

So far, it hasn’t been the season Thomas Vanek envisioned for himself, nor has it been what the Red Wings expected of Vanek.

When they signed Vanek on July 1 to a one-year contract worth $3 million, it was with the hope Vanek would put up the numbers he did with the Red Wings two years ago, and with Vancouver and Columbus last season.

Roughly speaking, that's about 15-20 goals and 45-50 points. That’s a typical Vanek season, which is ideal production for a 34-year-old offensively gifted veteran wing.

But it hasn’t gone that way.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
