The first 20 games or so of last year, I thought he was dynamite, but then the team hit a rut and by the time we got out of it, JVR just wasn't the same guy anymore.
So part of that is just being a rookie, but I think part of it was not being totally prepared for the grind of the NHL season. So hopefully he'll be better prepared this year and more prepared for those January, February, March games when it can get really tough.
I agree. He did say his body fat % was down so all things point towards him being in better shape.
