JVR The Big Man

Really impressed with JVR's play so far, 11 goals on the season. The point i wanted to make is that JVR is showing skills similar to that of Tomas Holmstrom. JVR isn't a sniper, or a superstar player scoring 11 goals. They're all coming from right outside the crease or in the crease it self. Aside from the snipe against the penguins when malkin turned it over, the other 10 goals were scored within 7ft of the net. He's grinding hard and scoring tough 'garbage goals' by driving the net.

Does he have what it takes to do this consistently? Can he have the same effect for our team and on the PP that Holmstrom had in Detroit ? A huge net presence is key for any teams success, the Luke Schenn / JVR trade is working out beautifully for us.
