If you look at their stats, Voracek is a step ahead of each player in terms of average production, etc.--and that's without taking into account the age difference.

I don't think it is a stretch to suggest that he's a more valuable asset.
Of course he's more valuable because he still has time to up his game and reach his potential. What's somewhat worrying is the fact that Voracek hasn't been able to crack 50p since his second NHL season. Last season he got more PP time per game than all other Flyers forwards except Giroux.

Next season will tell a lot (assuming there's a CBA in place...)
