You can sit there and squeeze points here or not quote me on points there. The fact remains the same.

On the ice, there is only realistically a slight offensive upside to acquiring Ryan over Voracek. Contracts, age, and defensive play all favor Voracek.
And you have completely failed to show that. According to your theory, Ryan has already reached his offensive potential and will never improve upon it, yet Voracek still has a 10 point improvement to go. In reality, Ryan had a down year this year, tying his career low, and still had better production than Voracek during his best year. Not to mention the myth that Voracek is so much better defensively than Ryan. Ryan actually PKs more(I think it's slight, but whatever) and he isn't a defensive slouch. You people should watch him more.

Voracek is two years younger and makes a million less. In any debate vs. Ryan, those two marginal differences are all he has going for him.
