I can 100% say that I did not think JVR was going to be a NHL player as a kid. Watched him play plenty of times and didn't think he was anything special until he was about 14 or 15. I think he transferred out of Christian Brothers when he was 15? I forget now. I watched him play as a kid quite often. I was always in the age bracket above him, though I played against him in some organized pick-up games I was invited to. I mean, he was one of the best players, but I never thought, "Damn, this kid is going to be a NHL player" until he started playing HS hockey.
