Yes, as I mentioned, Sanji hasn't performed the best in the past two arcs. I'm as upset with his lack of power as the next people, maybe more because Sanji, despite his position in the crew, is continually underappreciated because Luffy and Zoro (understandably) supersede him. I agree, Zoro probably would have handled Vergo a bit better, but Vergo was known for his Armament Haki and Law is a Supernova/Warlord level pirate. He took on Isshou AND Doflamingo! Again, yes, unfortunately Sanji hasn't shown much to close the power 'gap' between the MT, but I have faith in him. He's about to take on Big Mom's ship essentially by himself. Not meaning to belittle the rest of the crew though....

Sanji did get a similar compliment about his kicks from Doflamingo, so your Admiral compliment toward Zoro is voided there. My point about Luffy revolves around the issue of him being captain: should a captain really lose? Mm, probably not. Yet Luffy does. Hell, even Zoro has several times since vowing to never lose again been outmatched and "lost" (Skypeia, SA, FI (being captured), PH (being knocked out by KPY gas or whatever). I have no problem with this, because it's all about creating a believable story where the protagonists will always face uncertainty in who they face, which makes both their defeats and triumphs that more powerful. I don't want Luffy and crew to always have the upper hand and victory-winning power; aka, I don't want Bleach or Fairy Tail. Therefore, the crew having loses or disparities of power between levels on all levels isn't bad, it's necessary. This necessity then makes the development of the crew much more fulfilling when they must once again overcome unbelievable challenges even after two years of growing stronger. Hell, this in turn shows how merciless the NW is. I guess my main point is that Sanji, regardless of how he's performed thus far in the NW, has always been closer to Zoro and Luffy than people have given him credit for, as has much of the crew.

Losses pre-skip don't apply since we are only talking about the Monster Trios relative power-ups. And Zoro didn't even fight back when he was caught in FI, as for the gas that knocked Zoro out in PH, it also knocked out Sanji (in Nami's body though).

It's been stated by Oda that no member will be stronger then Luffy/Zoro/Sanji - so the only question is how far apart each of them are to each other. I think the current power ranking are like..
Luffy/Zoro - Sanji/Franky - Robin/Brook - Chopper - Usopp/Nami
Each "-" is like step down. (although I think Chopper could be stronger then Robin/Brook, his most powerful move has a MAJOR weakness)
