JVR has never surpassed 40 points, at the very least Raymond has hit 50 points once. Raymond and JVR had similar production coming off major injuries.

Hansen is on the 3rd line because of depth, if we didn't have better top 6 options he would play there. During injuries/slumps Hansen regularly plays in the top 6.
None of those guys are as good a centre as Higgins is (Hank obviously excluded), and that's a weakness.

JvR is 23 years old, substantial difference there.
