JVR gets more **** than he deserves, people complain that he doesn't produce in the regular season, but he hasn't had much of a chance to perform between switching lines constantly, in and out with injuries and playing through injuries. His ice time has also been inconsistent as a result, it's not surprising he hasn't been in able to get any consistency for the games he did play.

I think he's underestimated just because he hasn't developed as fast as Kane, but he's still 22 and, judging by last year's playoffs, has a lot of potential still. Give him a chance, something like putting him back on Giroux's line next year and if they have some chemistry I could see him producing like Hartnell this year.
