An interesting quote by Holmgren on JVR...

The Flyers also expect big things from right wing James van Riemsdyk, who was taken second overall behind Patrick Kane in 2007, after the Flyers lost a coin flip to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Holmgren said it is "unlikely" van Riemsdyk, 20, will make the Flyers out of training camp.

"I don't want to put him in a position where he's not ready," Holmgren said. "Last year at this time, I expected Claude (Giroux) to make our team, but I'm not thinking the same way with James. I don't expect him to make our team, but it would be great if he did."
