I like Voracek better, but I can see how you could choose either.

Right now I think it's pretty even, but Voracek is so raw. If he fine tunes his game he'll surpass Perron.

Voracek is slated to play on a line with Giroux and has a chance to explode if/when the season starts.

Voracek has more talent, imo. Give him a shoot-first centre and you'll see some serious chemistry.

I think Voracek's game without the puck is a bit more complete than Perron. Good poll.

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.

Right now I'd go with Perron, but I think Voracek is a season or so away from surpassing Perron.

How is this poll close at all? Perron is significantly better than Jakub "I can't shot or develop" Voracek.

I'm surprised at how close this is too. I think it's Perron by a decent amount.

Their PPG is almost identical and as far as I know, Voráček is more responsible in his own zone. No way Perron is "significantly" better.

Not quite. Last season tipped the scales for Perron in terms of PPG.

Why? Last year it was Perron's 0.74 v. Voráček's 0.63. Not a big difference, it would account for mere 9 extra points after 82 games.

I believe Voráček is able to become a PPG player with Giroux as his centre.

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.
