voracek is more talented, that's pretty obvious i think. their 2-way ability is kind of a wash but i'd still give the slight edge to jake, but his puck skills are better, his puck protection is better and on top of that, he has a big size advantage. if we opt to keep read over jake, we get considerably smaller. that's something i don't think people think about as much as they should. This team could already get bigger up front, we don't need to get any smaller. not to mention that jake is 3 years younger than read. the only thing read has going for him that may put him above jake is his contract...
