Voracek is one of those players that has all the skill in the world, but has troubling finishing his chances. He's missed countless breakaways and scoring chances due to mishandling the puck in close. He seems to panic a little bit when in tight.

On a team with such offensive depth as the Flyers, he won't be getting as much ice time as he might otherwise receive. Due to that and his inability to finish chances, I see him his ceiling at 65 points. He's a RFA after this season, so it will be interesting to see what his next contract looks like. If he re-signs with the Flyers (likely), I predict 20-25 goals and 30-35 assists next season, for a total of 50-60 points, most likely falling in the middle of that range.
Wrong.
One of the better defensive forwards on this team.
