JVR just never seemed to mentally make the transition to the NHL game. He was always trying cute stuff that worked for him in college (but would never work in the pros) in the offensive zone and would usually end up frustrated and just start ripping wrist shots from the blue line as soon as he crossed it (like Carter). I personally think staying in college ruined him - the CHL and AHL would have taught him so much more about what it takes to transition creativity to the actual ice surface in the pros, imo.

That being said, its never too late for the "switch" to get flipped... and we all know he has the physical traits to be successful in spades.
