He may have, but even if you dumby his numbers down, Coffey still captured three Norris trophies, would have still likely easily eclipsed 1,000 career points, is a HOFer and played in some of the biggest international games in history, such as Rendezvous 87. And he has three cup rings too.

Voynov has 28 NHL games ever and has gone over the 30 point level once in 3+ pro seasons in North America. And he did that in the AHL.

I agree VV has great upside, and he might be a top pairing guy someday. Saying VV and Coffey in the same sentence is assinine though. Even Zubov is crazy IMO.
