Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider said that he thinks Jakub Voracek "could be a superstar."

That might be a bit much, yet Voracek is a fantastic talent who just seems to be getting more confident. His shots-per-game have risen every single season, going up to an impressive 2.87 per contest (235 in 82 games played) last season. Voracek should be getting plenty of great looks to unleash his shot skating with genuine superstar Claude Giroux.
