Continued: Pominville still connected to Vanek, and everybody knows it

“We knew going into this season that it was going to be tough to win games,” Vanek said. “This league is good. In the cap era, there’s a lot of good teams each and every night. Everyone can beat everyone. But when you go young, especially as young as we did, it makes it even harder.

“And not that they’re not good players. Every single one of these guys are good hockey players, or they wouldn’t be here. But the major difference is experience. You can’t teach experience. I was the same way when I was young. And until you go through 82-game season grinds multiple times, that’s when you start to learn about yourself.”
