Is it a good stretch, or is he really becoming an elite player? Obviously, he won't always play above 2 PPG, but I could really see him breakout and becoming a PPG player. He has definitely shown signs of it recently. If he keeps this up, him and Giroux will be a lethal offensive combo for years to come.

That's a pace for 40+ goals...and 10 assists.

I would think he's becoming an elite player. He has every skill necessary to be a top flight player, shot accuracy could still use a little work. But the only thing holding him back before was confidence in the offensive zone, he seems to have that now, and it's showing up on the scoresheet, and I'm a happy boy because of it.

This kid is becoming a stud, him and Giroux could become a future nasty duo with the skill set they both have.

He also has shown some nice chemistry with B.Schenn too.

I nearly dropped him from my fantasy team. Sure am glad I didn't!

I thought he might max out around a 65 point player, but the way he is playing he could be a legit top scoring 1st liner. He just needs to keep it up for more than a week or so before I get overly excited about it.

At the moment, he's just making things happen in the offensive zone constantly. Last year, for all his ability, he seemed to be lacking in an end product somewhat. Think we'll have to wait until this hot streak calms down a bit before labelling him "elite", but there are a lot of positive signs

Lol, if he could keep this up for a season he'd be the best player in the league. He's scoring 2.4 points a game over his last five.

inb4 he's traded


Hopefully not. I hope he stays te course. I like him. He has no shot but Giroux does. Schenn is also showing one too. If Giroux shoots Voracek will find him. And Hartnell could bury any garbage. Ginger line ftw

Voracek has always had the skill. I think the Jagr influence was what Voracek needed. Now that Voracek has seen what elite players need to do to be successful, you can see that transition in his game. I think what we're seeing is the Voracek that Columbus envisioned when they drafted him. He's using his body effectively and you can see that he's really thinking the game in all three zones. That's the sign of an elite player. Previously, there were glimpses of it last season, but this year, he's finally put it all together.

I'm just pointing out the weirdness that would result if that pace were carried for an 82 game season. That would have to be close to the record for most goals with fewest assists

It's seemed the past few games that Voracek and Schenn have been overthinking plays a lot less. Get the puck to the net and look for chances. Voracek scored the PP goal against the Penguins because he was drifting towards the net when the puck squirted out.

just watching him truck it in the offensive zone is pretty amazing, if anything he's the one who will open things up for G. To early to tell, but if this is what Voracek brings to the table then wow.

Voracek actually showed a lot last year and especially in the playoffs......he just should stay away from his mom's home cooking in the offseason! Luckily he has rounded back into form...

Really? OV was by far the best goal scorer in the league at his prime.

No, no, no, you've got it all wrong... he "rounded" himself out of form this offseason thanks to Momma's cooking. Now he's "slimmed" himself back into form.
