YES intangibles...we are counting on him filling out and becoming strong on the puck, the next "John LeClair" - I am saying that I'm betting he won't be that, and he MAY end up being a late bloomer but when u pick a #2 (which richards and giroux weren't)...u hope and EXPECT them to be closer to Patrick Kane/Sid Crosby/Ovechkin...not Horton (via Florida Panthers years)...so by the time he REALIZES his potential, we probably won't have him, so take what you can get now.
And I never wanted Giroux gone...Giroux's pre-Flyers years in the canadian junior system are impressive, JVR's brief stint with college hockey (if he is so good why UNH?) is less than impressive and I do think he could stand to play with more heart. None of his characteristics point to what you should get for a #2 overall.
