You do. Listen, I like JVR's skill set, always have (you can go back through my post history). What I don't like is his inconsistency when it comes to the physical part of the game. He has never seemed naturally mean or aggressive enough, and the ephemeral spurts when he flashes that kind of ability don't change my opinion (see: Carter, Jeff). If JVR ever harnesses the nastiness ingredient and makes it part of his overall game CONSISTENTLY, he could be downright unstoppable (see: last year's playoffs). Then again, I maintain that such a mindset and demeanor is intrinsic -- you're either born with it, or you're not. It's not something that just develops over time. We've seen this before with JVR -- he'll have a game like he did last night and then disappear for two weeks. I'd still be very comfortable leveraging his value and potential in a trade for someone like Rick Nash, although that should not be confused with me wanting to run him out of town.
