Really? Voracek's already a fairly strong EV player and he's only 22. His PP productivity is a pretty good bet to improve over the next couple of years, and if that happens you have a 60 point, defensively responsible winger. If you could get him for $5 million plus first and third round picks, I think a lot of teams would look at that (especially teams who will likely be drafting in the bottom part of the first round).

That said, I think it's a good bet that Philly matches $5 million/year if they were willing to sign him at $4.2 million/year. It's unlikely they topped out what they were willing to pay to keep him around.
