Ehwha? Voracek's played one more season than Wilson and has outperformed him literally every single season. Heck, Jake's worst NHL season is still above Wilson's best so far (although admittedly I doubt that'll last ). And Philly desperately needed a playmaking winger, not a budding power forward - they already have JvR.

Wilson doesn't fill a need there, and so wouldn't have worked as the centerpiece IMO. I'm still convinced the only way Carter would have been a Pred would have been if Rinne was offered before Holmgren started talking to Phoenix.
