Kane was set for instant NHL success (or at least more so than JVR) much like Richards and Giroux from the Flyers. Players like that reach their max potential within just a few years. Players like Carter and JVR take longer to develope but usually end up better in the long run.
I love Giroux but I think JVR is going to be the better and more valuable player. Giroux makes some amazing plays but he also seems to force plays and that leads to him making many mistakes (like turnovers in his own zone or plays that lead to odd man rushes).
JVR tends to make the safer play, it makes him look less "spectacular" but he makes the wiser choice right now.
I like Kane but I'd still take Giroux over Kane and if I'd take JVR over Giroux, what do you think I would say over the JVR/Kane debate.
Eh.. thats the biggest thing I disagree with. If anything the main thing JVR needs to work on is making the smarter pass. Too many times does he try to use his size to plow past the opponents blue line, and too many times does he lose it or get it taken away. Thats my biggest concern with JVR and hope he fixes it.
And pretty much everyone knows where I stand on the Giroux vs JVR thing so lets not discuss that.
