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.
I agree Voracek isn't a perfect fit, but I disagree we need a sniper. We need playmakers just as bad. Really any forward with offensive skill who isn't a grinder will do.
