His point is still valid. JVR is big with good hands and a knack for scoring goals. He hasn't turned into a power forward YET. Lets not be the Habs this time around and trade him before he turns into one. We very nearly turned the John Leclair trade into a Stanley Cup. Now we have a young John Leclair (he is similar in goals and how he is perceived as Leclair was in Montreal) - I say be very careful when you are thinking about trading him. He has 40+ goal potential. Lavy is pushing the right buttons.

Look at Leclair:

Look at JVR:

He has similar stats to a young Leclair. Similar frame, similar hands, similar shot. Why trade him now? Makes no sense to me. None.
