He's shown flashes of a net presence game in the past, but he's never really sustained it. In all fairness to JVR, he was doing a great job of crashing the net early last year and was scoring @ a nearly a point per game through the first 19 games of the season. At that point, he sustained the first of his many injuries that season (and he was already playing through a hip issue), and he was never really the same player the rest of the 2011-2012 season.
If JVR continues to crash the net for you, you're going to get yourself one heck of a player. He might be a little out of shape right now, but once he shakes off the lockout legs he can really fly.
