I've always thought this kid had talent but never the opportunity because of the presence of DD and JJ historically. I also think a lot of people forgot about Voynov this year because DD was so dominant during last year's playoff run while Voynov played a more defensive role and was relegated to "safer" minutes.
I've quietly followed him all season and his ice time continues to creep up higher and higher. A huge chunk of his points this season have been at ES, an encouraging sign, but more recently he has also started getting decent PP time which can only help his point production (as he showed last night).
More important than the stats suggest though is the fact that he is playing with a ton of confidence out there, and he looks rock solid. His +/- reflects his play and the coach has been rewarding him by playing him in key situations.
Similar to how OEL upstaged Yandle in PHX, I think a similar situation could be unfolding in LA between Voynov and DD. This may be his breakout year.
If he's still on the wire in your league, I'd suggest a close look.
