He had 46 points his final season in CLB. And the team was down on him because it looked like he was regressing.
Still no. He was 4th on the team in points with 46 that year and two of the guys tied for third above him had 47 points. He was 21. Columbus not having the patience to properly develop a young player is not new and does not negate the fact that he was putting up top six numbers and was (one point shy) of being tied for third on his team in scoring. Voracek was never a third liner. If he played on Philly's third for a brief while it was due to depth and a "getting to know you" period. He's been a top six winger basically since his rookie year.
