Both recognized potential.

Look at what Lupul is accomplishing now in Toronto.
Someone on here compared JVR to John Leclair, and I think it was a great comparison.

John Leclair didn't exactly light it up with Montreal in his first 5 seasons. He gets traded in the midst of a 26 goal campaign in 46 games with Montreal and becomes a superstar in Philly. I just KNOW for a fact when we trade JVR (if we do), it will turn out to like the Leclair trade. He will thrive with his new team and score 35-40 goals in his first season. Leclair of course scored 51 in his first full season as a Flyer.

Moral of the story is I think we would be making a huge mistake trading a developing 22 year old power forward. Let him reach his potential before letting him go. I wanna see if he can make it here first, instead of tossing him under the bus.

John Leclair was my favorite Flyer Just wanted to throw that in there
