Take a step back for a second and look at what you wrote and realize how stupid it sounds. Any player is not good when they "don't have their game". I realize you were attempting to come up with a creative way to restate the same old boring line that "JVR is inconsistent", but what ended up coming out was an extremely dumb statement.

Also, as I've stated now several times, a 23 year old power forward who went the NCAA route of development struggled with consistency issues over his first 3 years (w/ the 3rd year being injury riddled); OH THE HORROR.

There once was this player named John LeClair, maybe you've heard of him? His original team gave up on him too after 3 years and change of inconsistent play. At the time his original team gave up on him, LeClair was 24 (JVR is 23). LeClair's best stat line at the time was 19 goals, 25 assists, 44 points (JVR's best year was 21 goals, 19 assists, 40 points).

The similarities are uncanny. Hopefully the similarities end there. If not, then we'll regret this trade for the next decade.

Oh, and just for fun (since you claim JVR has consistency issues that he'll never get over), the last 30 games that JVR played for the Flyers when healthy looked like this: 15 goals, 8 assists, 23 points.
