everyone wanted to ride this guy out of town on the bustline and say we should of drafted Turris or Voracek.
Hey, I was never down on JVR either. Got to watch him firsthand when he played BU, but even then I knew it would take him time to adjust to pro speed and adapt his physical game after playing his home games on Lake Whittemore. I'm glad the Flyers were patient and have enough depth to surround him with skilled players as he came along.
