Leafs have Van Riemsdyk, kind of similar to the 'Canes' Tlusty.

JVR was a much higher pick a year later, and was dealt away from his drafting team for less than what one would expect.

They are performing with similar stats this year.

JVR career high 40 points in 75 games
JT career high 36 points in 79 games

JVR career high 21 goals
JT career high 17 goals

I'm quite happy with Van Riemsdyk, and hope we're only seeing the tip of the ice berg. Being picked 2nd. overall brings a lot of expectation, much more than being picked 13th. overall.
