As long as we have consistent production from the G-Unit and secondary scoring from everyone else, I am more than comfortable with Voracek settling into a defensive role on the third line.
Yeah, Voracek really seems to be hitting his stride on the third line. I think I read something like Voracek has scored 19 points in the past 21 games since being moved to the third line. I mentioned Voracek seems to have become a more Jere Lehtinen type of player and a third line of Voracek / Couturier / Simmonds would be mad to play against and they'd probably score quite a bit on you too.

I'm really loving the Carter deal more and more watching Voracek. This guy is going to be a big player on this team for years to come.
