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.


His point is valid to a point, so what? He has good hands and speed, ok. Again he isnít a world class player by any means. He may or may not be someday. Comparing leclair and jvr is funny to me. They are not nearly the same type of player, not even close inm. Their size and the fact they are form the US is what they have in common. I donít need to look up anything about leclair as seen him play plenty. I do not see 40 goal potential from JVR at this point at all.
