True. We'll see how that plays out against better competition, however. If he's not trying against Canada, he won't be on the scoresheet.

Edit: I should add...I used to feel that way about Tavares. I wouldn't notice him much during the game, but then I'd get home and find out he had a hat trick. As he's getting older I notice him take charge more. JVR is older though and should be taking charge already, so I don't even know where I'm going with this.
