Sure, he has done NOTHING! Not one thing ever to lead people to believe he has the talent to be a first line winger in the NHL.

kind of the same way Giroux spent the half of his first season in the AHL to developed.

Sure he's playing better than last year but you can't have a 2nd overall pick a 3rd-4th liner at best, he needs to be pushing for a top 6 forward spot
Actually, sending JVR to the Phantoms or scratching him sends the wrong message. This is not like the Zherdev case. The effort is there for JVR. He's doing what he's told. Things just aren't going his way right now. It's important that he works through this in the NHL.
