I love the way that you can't understand why people think that he holds a great deal of value. Then again, you probably think that Bryz is the worst goaltender in the league, That Coburn isn't worth his Salary, that Giroux was a bust after spending some time in the AHL, that Schenn is going to be a bust and we need to trade him, That Hartnell should have been traded in the first 5 games of the season.
Philly fans are notoriously fickle. The what have you done for me lately gig has ensured that the flyers haven't won a cup in 30+ years. I'm glad to see that homer seems to be taking a different route lately and that they are finally willing to build the right way. You don't win trading players of JVR's age for proven vets.
Well in JVR case, its honestly "what have you done". Like honestly, can you tell me with a straight face you are sincerely happy with how JVR has been so far? Like truthfully?
There are many views that people take among players. It seems that we are different. If a player doesnt play well, I critize him for it and expect better. You seem to say its ok since their young. Bryzgalov didnt have a good season. I expect better. Seems that you say he gets a pass since he had good seasons before. Never said anything about trading Schenn, Coburn or even Bryz for that matter.
Shafer said JVR is a playoff stud (or along those lines). What defines a stud in the playoffs? Where does the line between Giroux's playoff stud and JVR's playoff stud begin and end? Fine, you want to take out his rookie season thats fine (we dont take out Giroux's rookie season when talking about playoff stud but thats ok). So that means in 18 games he had what, 6 good games? How does that define a playoff stud?
