Maybe the reason Voracek is being over looked is because he plays on a team that has Giroux and some other names but Voracek here would instantly be the man. He'd be that offensive player, webs the d, and peks the goalie. the big 3. not to mention we could add in ufa.
If anything, playing with Giroux has increased his value. He doesn't hit almost a PPG last season if he doesn't play with Giroux. I think Viqsi's assessment is pretty accurate, he would be a very similar player to Martin Erat, and his stats prior to last season bear out that assessment, a 45-55 point guy, with a little more upside in a great season. Sure, he's still young and capable of development, and it's possible last year wasn't an anomaly, but the statistics bear out that it probably was.
