Victor Hedman - Has struggled thus far but imprved a lot this year and since coming back from his injury has looked like a true #1d-man

Drew Doughty - Already has a Norris nomination and is a forerunner for the conn smyth this year

Jordan Staal - Top defensive forwards while having multiple decent seasons being stuck behind Malkin and Crosby. 50 points and 25 goals in only 62 games this year

Bobby Ryan - Already one of the most skilled forwards in the league hands wise and has atleast 30 goals in all 4 seasons he has been in the nhl. Already has a 70 point season

Evgeni Malkin - a calder, 2 Art Ross, a Conn Smyth, 3 times Hart & ted lindsay finalist and possible one of each when the year is over.

Eric Staal - 100 Point season, Multiple 70 point seasons playing with no help, lead the playoffs in scoring.

Kari Lehtonen - Great Golie, suffers through a lot of injuries but when healthy is a top goalie in the league and has shwn that this year.

Jason Spezza - Career ppg player, On pace for ver 100 points multiple times, 4th in scoring this year

Danny Heatly - Multiple 100 point and 50 goal seasons.

Daniel Sedin - Art Ross and Ted Lindsay winner

David Legwand - We have to go all to 1998 to find someone who seems to be similiar to jvr in development curve.

All of the other guys bar vcitor hedman had shown signs or already developed into threats as early as their second year. Every single forward there has had a better first or second year than jvr has had up to now and all of them did it straight out of the draft. He had 2 extra development years and still cannot top any of them. Kids a bust
This is quite possibly the dumbest post I have ever seen on these boards. Kid doesn't break out in 2 years and he's a bust

Did you realise that our number 1 defenseman named timonen didn't "break out" until he was 27.

Shall I post a list of players that didn't breakout in their first 4 years, but became stars. Oh look, the sedin brothers didn't have a great start, they had 5 years of mediocre points. Both are clearly busts. I can't believe cannuck fans want them on thier team.

Some people around here need to grow up. JVR has just turned 23, not 28 or 29. He's only just finished growing, he has one injury plagued year and suddenly he's a terrible bust.

Sometimes flyers fans really don't deserve the players they have on this team.
