I know Carlyle had a one on one with him and told him that going to the net and using his size was how he was going to find success. I'm just wondering if that was something that JVR lost touch with after his injury in Philly (and Carlyle was just reminding him)or if it's a new role that Carlyle believed he was a perfect fit for and needed him to buy into.
there is a video of him by a flyers fan of every point he had last year
for me his playmaking ability really stood out and his positioning much like this year was great and how he got a lot of goals
he follows the play really well

and not to bash on Schenn but a guy like that you can replace with Fraser pretty easily.
