Randy Miller's latest article on JVR...

The JVR trade rumors have ended.

Flyers left wing James van Riemsdyk isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Not to the Nashville Predators. Not on the ice with the Flyers.

A day after being linked to talk that he could be traded to Toronto for defenseman Luke Schenn, JVR was shut down indefinitely with a concussion that no one outside the organization knew about.
Concussions have been a bigger problem than ever this season throughout the NHL, and the Flyers have been victimized as much as anyone. Captain Chris Pronger is done for the season due to post-concussion symptons, plus star center Claude Giroux, rookies Brayden Schenn and Matt Read all have missed games with a concussion.

JVR is averaging 15:10 of ice time per game this season, but played just 13:54 Tuesday in Carolina and 10:32 in Thursday’s road win against the New York Islanders.

JVR has 11 goals and 22 points in 37 games, but it’s been a frustrating season for the 22-year-old Jersey product as he’s battled another undisclosed injury for much of the season that probably will require surgery at some point. Depending on how serious his concussion is, perhaps the other issue will be addressed sooner rather than later.
