So to say that that is his floor seems to be taking it a bit too far, imo. I believe that JvR will be a tremendous player for us and look forward to see him play on Giroux's wing for the next few years, but he still has a lot to show.

I should perhaps note that my main problem with JvR so far into his career isn't the lack of production as much as it is his lack of all around play. I thought he'd be a much more complete player by now, but he is still pretty much lost defensively. He is still young of course and can still develop into a pretty solid two-way player.
He never got it going this year, thats not his fault...but hes STILL SO YOUNG, and his game (powerforward) needs time to develop. Look at hartnell, where was he at JvR's age?

hes close to a 30-30 player, and he is nowhere near jvr's talent lvl
