BTW, JVR is a good prospect but he's not a "power forward". He's just a big boy. He does not initiate contact and doesn't seem to like getting hit either. If you're thinking Ryan Getzlaf or Rick Nash, you are way off. JVR also has a tendency to be invisible, his consistency isn't there yet. He's not slow but he's not fast either. At this point in his development, a more favourable comparison would be Jason Spezza with better hands, and as you know, Spezza is a soft player. From what I've seen, JVR has no mean streak, it's not like he's Corey Perry out there.

So yes, there's a lot of potential out there but he's no power forward.
