Welcome to HFboards, where a player's reputation never changes unless he has 3 or more consecutive amazing years.

JVR is still an inconsistent waste of a 2nd overall who will never put it together for a full season and Luke Schenn is still a horrendously slow bottom-pairing defenseman who gets routinely beaten around the outside.

Honestly though, I'm a Flyers fan and you do have yourself a beaut with JVR. He was amazing in the 10-11 playoffs, was again AMAZING over the first 19 games of the 11-12 season, where he was basically on a 35-35 pace and then the injuries started. He had already been dealing w/ hip issues and then he tore an abdominal muscle. He had just gotten back from that when he was concussed. Then he had just returned from that when he broke his foot. If he stays healthy (which is should), he will continue to be great for you. Certain Flyers fans just could never cope with the fact that JVR wasn't really "inconsistent", he was simply a young player who suffered a few injuries at the most inopportune times.

With that said, Luke Schenn has also been a beast for us and has played much better than advertised. He's been beaten around the outside maybe once all year (by JVR @ a meaningless point in our first meeting after you'd already locked up the win). He's leading the team in ES points, facing the toughest competition and still keeping opponents off the scoreboard. He's easily been our best defenseman.
