I think last year the Flyers should have handle JVR the same way they did Giroux. They should have sent him to the Phantoms for half the season or maybe even the full season.
JVR came from US College, no disrespect to that hockey but they only play about 30 games and only on weekends I think. Jumping from College to NHL is a bigger step than the Canadian Junior League to NHL. in the CHL they play 60 games + playoffs (nfl format)
I think they should send him down right now, get him lots of playing time get his confidence back up, scoring lots of goals, work on his game and call him back around Christmas. I think that would be the best for his development as a player.
