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.
You are out of your mind. He is a better version of Leclair. The flyers will demand he use his size. Leclair was not a vicious player. he was still a power forword. Jeff Carter and JvR will kick ass next year.
