Vanek advances by not moving

Via: Buffalo News

'The measure of Vanek's progress is in the numbers. It's not that he leads all American Hockey League rookies with 30 goals. That might have been expected from the University of Minnesota star who dazzled Buffalo with his offensive gifts during the 2003 Frozen Four. More telling is Vanek's plus-4 rating, a positive compiled even though 16 of his goals have come on the power play and therefore are stricken from the equation.'
