7-1 Flyers win, Voracek -1 on the night......
With Philly decimated by injuries, I figured it would give Voracek a long look on the top line, but Laviolette knows his players better than I ever will, and he's elected to go with Read instead... Obviously panned out for them tonight, Read with a hattrick, and of course Voracek with a -1 for the game... Think I'm gonna cut the cord on him at this point... I can appreciate it's early in the season, but he does this each year... Comes with lots of promise, and simply doesn't translate it into on ice production...
Thinking I'm gonna drop him for Conacher at the moment, and then pick up a replacement RW after Pacioretty gets shifted to the IR... Maybe Hodgson, Purcell, Clowe, or even Read!
