There was one moment last night where JVR gave us a glimpse of what we want from him. He went in on the forecheck and just crushed the guy with the puck against the boards, resulting in a loose puck on the inside of the circle. The Buffalo player was totally unprepared for how fast JVR came at him. The problem was that both the other Leafs forwards had already backed off the zone in anticipation of the Buffalo breakout.

I think he'll continue to improve, and his point production will rely heavily on his linemates being able to anticipate him making plays like that.
