You can look good without scoring any goals (like Briere has been). You can also look bad while scoring goals (like I believe JVR has even though his line has been our best).
You can't have a line playing as well as that line has been doing with one of the guys on it dragging it down, it just doesn't happen.
JVR isn't a flashy player a lot, it's funny how much you are parroting the exact same criticism people had of him at the WJCs (when he set up Wilson for about 8 golden chances and Colin missed all of them). He's a rookie making the jump straight from school to the NHL, it's a pretty big step.
He's holding his own out there and helping to facilitate offense, I'm fine with him.
