Where will Voracek play next season? NHL or AHL?
 
I think he won't play in qmjhl one more season ... look how is he dominating

he has more than 2pts per match is 9th in points and played only 34 matches

what do you say? NHL or AHL

I can see him as Vyborny's replacement after this season.

I believe the age rules of the AHL mean he'll either return to Juniors or be with the Jackets.

I see. I didn't know about this rule.

FiveHole23 01-30-2008 08:47 AM

Depends on his camp, but im guessing he makes it.

puckgoalnet 01-30-2008 08:54 AM

I really can't see the value of him playing another year in the q. 69pts in 34 games, he's only 9 pts out of the overall lead. He needs to start playing in games where he's challenged.

Wease 01-30-2008 09:19 AM

I don't see how he doesn't make this team next year. He was one of the better players in the WJC, even though his team didn't do as well. He can't go to the AHL, he dominates the QMJHL. He'll be a Jacket next year, but if he doesn't do well (Brule?), he'll be sent to Syracuse the following year. That's my guess... :)

newellky 01-30-2008 09:46 AM

NHL....watched him all last year and all this year in the Q and if hes put into socring line minutes im pretty sure he will produce

xanbo 02-01-2008 10:41 AM

I still have yet to watch him play, so I can only go on what I hear. Based on that, I'd guess he'll have a good shot at making the team in training camp, then get his 9- or 10-game trial before we have to decide to send him back to juniors or keep him. Another factor there is the quality of the coaching staff in Halifax and their history of developing talent. Again, stuff I really don't have first-hand knowledge of.

Probably AHL.

*BZZZZZZZT* Sorry, thanks for playing! Please accept our parting gift.

I think a lot of people might like to see Voracek in the AHL first, but because of his age (as keeps being restated), it's QMJHL or NHL for him. No other options.

He'll almost certainly start the year in Columbus, and we'll see what happens from there.

He could go back to Europe....

its an option, but I hope not... Then again, I don't want to see him in the NHL if he isn't ready just because he tore up the Q two years in a row.

I thought that if he goes back to Europe, unless Columbus releases him to do so, it's a contract violation?

Could be wrong, though.

The door is open, if he can prove himself in camp, he'll walk through.

Macster 02-01-2008 10:07 PM

Jake is not going back to Europe.

Folks- it's easy. You have to be 20 by Dec. 31 of the season in question to qualify for the AHL. That means Jake isn't AHL eligible until the 2009/2010 season.

We'll see how he does in camp, and then we'll see if he is on the CBJ roster, or back in Halifax.

Robert 02-01-2008 10:09 PM

I think he makes the Jackets, assuming he has a good camp. We need scorers regardless of age, if his camp indicates he can hit the net he will stay.

mt-svk 02-02-2008 01:48 PM

If Jakub will have a good camp, 100% in Columbus. And I think he will have a excelent camp.

Exactly. He may not be ready for the NHL but I don't know how he could improve much more by dominating in the QMJHL. Being here will also expose him to pro trainers and strength coaches and demand he be in better shape.

KeithBWhittington 02-02-2008 02:58 PM

a few questions then a final word.

How's his defensive game? Is he working on it in Halifax?


I just don't want the Brule Syndrome to hit again. I hate that he's "outgrown" the Q, but I don't want to throw him to the NHL wolves yet...

Would one more year in the Q be the worst option if he has a good NHL camp? I am fine with him playing another year to polish is overall game even more.

5StringBuzz 02-02-2008 03:54 PM

If he's outgrown junior, and he fails in the NHL, then we can blame the rule that prevented him from going to the AHL. :sarcasm:

Timeless Winter 02-02-2008 04:16 PM

This sounds like the Brule situation next year, juniors or NHL. I hope the results aren't the same.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I think he gets the 10-game try out. He gets some ice time to prove whether or not he's ready. If not, he goes back to juniors, but if he can score some points, he'll stay. Even though it's the previous regime, I hope the organization learned from Brule.

Matt 02-02-2008 04:33 PM

He will go back to Juniors

CoachWithNoTeam 02-03-2008 03:31 PM

I think he very well could make the big team next year. He finally caught up to Claude Giroux in points. He's been chasing him all year, and has played 6 games less than him. Voracek has the most PPG in the QMJHL, by a wide margin.

He has 23 - 49 - 72 in 36 games. (2ppg)
Giroux 29 - 43 - 72 in 42 games (1.7ppg)

He's 5 points out of the overall lead and everyone above him has played like 15-20 games more than him. And nearly everyone with more points than him is also 18+ months older than him, with the exception of Christopher DiDomenico who has 77 in 51 games (1.5ppg) and is still 6 months older than him...

I dont know. I'm not sure that him being hands down the best player in the league for two years in a row will help his development more than starting his NHL career next year. The question is whether or not he's ready to play in the speed and strength of the league... I think he'll manage.

DougKnowsBest 02-03-2008 04:43 PM

at this point he would certainly add something more to the team than modin
