Don't think trade works out. Philly needs top 4 defensemen, but we have none to spare. Voracek would add to our glut of top 6 wingers (Hornqvist, Wilson, Smith, Bourque, Forsberg, Stalberg, Beck), making one of those guys the most attractive piece to send back to Philly in exchange.

I like Voracek a lot, but he's no sniper. Pretty low career S% if you remove that anomalous 17.1% last year. I'm also very wary of him based on a really good shortened season, and think he's closer to a 45-50 point guy than the 80 point guy he would have projected to be last year.

I expect Viqsi would have some good insight here.
