Voracek has one of the most complete skill sets amongst forwards in the game. He skates smoothly and quickly, and has hands great hands, a decent shot, and very good vision and playmaking. The problem is that he is not a good finisher. I can't count the number of times I thought Voracek had a sure goal and he fumbled the opportunity. I think his brain goes haywire when he's too close to the net sometimes.
Perron isn't as highly skilled as Voracek, especially in terms of his skating, but he does have slick hands and a better goalscoring instinct.
I take Voracek here because I feel he will break out this upcoming season with 70 points.
Voracek has a good package of skills but Perron at this point is IMO the more effecient talent. Perron is a pure scorer and plays a smarter game with superior execution. I think he has a slight edge at this point due to a more polished style.
Exhibit A as to how hockey doesn't matter on ESPN:
Last night an ESPN program was discussing how the Detroit Pistons needed a hero citing the heroes on the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Lions and no mention of the Detroit Red Wings. All this despite the Red Wings probably being the most succesful team in Detroit right now.
I'd take Voracek, but 9 points is a pretty good distaance apart
One extra point for every nine games. It's nothing, especially if one is trying to sell it as the crucial factor that is supposed to compensate for Perron's worse two-way play and decide this poll significantly in his favor.
