Depends what you need. Both entirely different players.

Maybe so, but I would take Simmonds all day, everyday, without hesitation, over Voracek.

Right now Simmonds is marginally superior, but I think Jake still has another gear.

Jray42 12-29-2012 01:02 PM

Voracek for me. Then again, I'm one of his biggest fans.

HockeyThoughts 12-29-2012 01:12 PM

For the record, I voted Wayne Simmonds. He's the better goal scorer, more physical, better PP player, more GWG..etc He's a year older but he's also proven the ability to play both as a checking line player (on the Kings) and as a scorer (on the Flyers).

simmonds for me. brings more to the game i think

I have to go with Jake. His offensive skill set is far superior and he is better defensively as well. Once the season starts, and Jake gets top line duties, people will get to see just how good he is.

Two completely different players. I honestly have no idea who to vote for, and I saw pretty much every game they played last year.

Voracek is definitely much more skilled. Above average skater who can enter the offensive zone with his shifty skating and puck skills. Problem is, when he gets into the offensive zone he sometimes does too much. Good passer and vision. He's really impressive to watch live in person.

Simmonds scores almost all of his goals in the dirty area around the crease. Rebounds, deflections, etc. More physical, really solid fighter. He's a fan favorite because he personifies 'Flyers hockey'.

It's a coin flip for me. Went with Voracek because I think he has more upside (I still think he has 60+ point upside).

InjuredChoker 12-29-2012 01:27 PM

Voted Voracek, this is close one.

Love he's power skating and passing ability. I think he has some potential left too, as Simmonds likely won't have much better season than what he had last year.

PensBandwagonerNo272 12-29-2012 01:30 PM

Voracek definitely has more skill and is generally the better player.

Simmonds is a dynamic player though no doubt.

TheJuxtaposer 12-29-2012 01:37 PM

I quite prefer Voracek.

capitalsrock 12-29-2012 01:49 PM

Voracek will be on the first line and Simmonds won't. Voracek will be amazing playing with Giroux. Voracek is more of an offensive threat while still managing to be better defensively. Simple answer for me.

tsujimoto74 12-29-2012 02:05 PM

Voracek. He is more skilled, and I think he will be the better player going forward.

laundryman 12-29-2012 04:46 PM

I'd say Simmonds is better now, but Voracek will surpass him next year

Voracek is the better player and has higher upside. Unless a team really needs a gritty player to drive to the net and score, I take Voracek.

ponder 12-30-2012 10:21 PM

Both very good wingers. Voracek is more skilled, but I prefer what Simmonds brings to the table, a very rare combination of skill, physicality/toughness, hustle and fighting ability. He's actually a pretty skinny guy, but he's very strong and plays like a beast, which is what really matters. I feel like he's the more unique and valuable player, even if Voracek is more skilled.

Simmonds all day, I do like Voracek a lot too
