Jake isn't a goal scorer, there shouldn't be that kind of pressure for him to put up 35.

What I want to see, is Giroux shoot a lot more this year, and Jake feeding him the biscuit non stop.

Jake is pretty damn close to being as good of a play maker as Giroux is, maybe not exactly but I know he can.

Jake may not get more than 20-25, but the amount of shots he generates should allow G and Hartnell many chances. I would expect his assist total to be higher. Having said that, both he and Giroux are effective carrying the puck into the zone. Couturier usually dumped it, that is why I would prefer Voracek with Couturier if Doan was signed.

UPDATE: There are reports in the Czech media, still awaiting confirmation here, that Jakub Voracek is on the brink of agreeing to a four-year, $17 million contract with the Flyers.

Via @David_Strehle and agent Petr Svoboda, the Voracek contract is now confirmed as a done deal.

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have signed 6-2, 214-pound forward Jakub Voracek to a multi-year contract extension, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

"We are happy to have Jake under contract and look forward to him being a big part of our future," said Holmgren.

Voracek, 22 (8/15/89), recorded 49 points (18G-31A) in 78 regular season games in 2011-12, his first with the Flyers. His 18 goals were a career-high.

He finished third on the Flyers in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with 10 points (2G-8A) in 11 postseason games, including the game-winning-goal in overtime of Game 1 at Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Penguins.

Voracek, who turns 23 next month, was a restricted free agent who scored a career-high 18 goals last season. He signed a four-year deal for $17 million, an annual cap hit of $4.25 million.


Flyers GM Paul Holmgren called Voracek "a big part of our future." A year ago, Voracek earned $2.25 million.

One day after general manager Paul Holmgren stated the Flyers were “moving on” after being unsuccessful with someone else’s restricted free agent, they re-signed one of their own.

Jake Voracek, 22, signed a four-year contract with the Flyers worth $17 million. The annual cap hit will be $4.25 million for the team.

"We are happy to have Jake under contract and look forward to him being a big part of our future," general manager Paul Holmgren said in a statement.

Holmgren said Wednesday that it was “only a matter of time” before Voracek signed. If there were an Olympic event for quantifying intentionally vague timetables, Holmgren would be a gold medal favorite.

Glad he's sticking around.

I guess Homer held off on finalizing the deal until everything with Weber was complete?

I see Voracek putting up 20-25 goals and 40-45 assists on G's wing. Was hoping the cap hit would be under $4M, but that wasn't realistic considering JVR's deal last summer and the one Oshie got last week.

I have been waiting for him to sign because, and this is just a guess of course. Whoever he is getting traded to, insisted he be signed first.

Finally. Right where I figured it would be, considering all the other similar signings.

Well..you never know with Holmgren...he's noncommital about commenting on the Ryan speculation it seems. I'm sure his wheels are still churning..as they should be.

Hm, I was hoping for 4 or under since all the years are RFA, but it's only just over 4.

Glad to have this done. He was a beast playing with G in the playoffs!

Edit: Wait, I think he's been in the league 4 years so it does buy a ufa year?

Isn't the last year a UFA year?
