Easily Voracek for me. Simmonds is good, but Voracek is a perfect complimentary player IMO.

I voted Simmons. I love the way he plays and would LOVE him on the Bruins.

Voracek has a better offensive skillset. I think his skill set makes him more versatile. Simmonds is a good garbage goal player and that's not a bad thing. He's smart with rebounds.

Voracek is just better for me because he's more talented imo.

Voracek has more superstar talent, but Simmonds is also a great player who brings more than just skill.

Tough decision and I'm glad the Flyers have both, but I'd choose Voracek. He has PPG talent

I absolutely love Wayne Simmonds.

This is Jake Voracek all day long. I don't think people quite yet understand just how good he actually is.

Voracek. He's no fluke. While Simmonds brings physicality, and fighting to the lineup, Voracek is a perfect second line winger.

I really see Voracek becoming an elite winger. By far our best player this past season, and I actually preferred him to play on a line without Giroux.

Voracek is a legit 50+ point player. That's selling him short on his other intangibles, but I'm too lazy to write it all out.

However, for the Oilers I take Simmonds and run. I don't even look back.

Voracek should be running away with this unless you choose for your favorite team that is already offensively stacked.

Like others have said i dont think this year was a fluke. Sure he's probably not a PPG player in a 82 game season but will hit the 60-70 pts range consistently.

Simmonds is overrated IMO.

He's more than a 50 point guy. He's been PPG for the past 80 games and playoffs.



Anyone who picks Simmonds isn't a Flyers fan. Simmonds is a really good player but Voracek is on a whole new level.

Simmonds brings a lot, but the answer is Voracek, and it really shouldn't even be close.

Definitely Jake. He's got talent that Simmonds just...doesn't. And his tools are Jagr-esque (meaning his size/strength/speed combination).

And his flow.

Voracek. He has flourished since arriving in Philly, proving why he was drafted so high.

Voracek for sure.

Simmonds is essentially a hot-rodded grinder with some solid finish, which makes him a valuable player for sure...But Voracek just has a much higher skill level.

Simmonds is the kind of player every team needs, but this isn't even remotely close. Jake is in an entirely different class, expect him to move into the elite, the general public is only beginning to understand how good he can be.
