Can't determine that for quite some time yet.
Remember - Philadelphia's big issue with van Reimsdyk wasn't what he could do, but what he couldn't; and that was consistently play the game that let him be successful on the ice.
You are right it is too early. But the deal looks good insofar as the potential we received and the impact we could be getting. JVR was inconsistent in Philly but also consider that his role was more limited, with guys like Hartnell playing ahead of him. Sometimes you just he to be the go to guy to get going.
