They may learn to put themselves in a better position to score goals with experience to increase their production but it's not like Jake doesn't get his chances he just doesn't finish. He may end up like a bigger Kapenen. Really good 2 way player with great speed that tops out at 20 goals. Ryan is a finisher.
No. Ryan takes shifts off. He isn't good defensively at all. Average maybe. But not good. Never said Voracek would develop a scoring touch. But he will be a good two-way player in this league that is a puck possession beast. Sami Kapenen is a terrible comparison because he was never as talented as Voracek. Kaps was a heart and soul type of guy with some skill he was never the playmaker and as skilled as Voracek is now.
