this wouldn't be a problem at all if JVR wasn't playing well and Schenn was playing well. hence, get used to it.

Luke is just not the player he was supposed to turn into when he was drafted. (Edit: That doesn't mean he doesn't have a future with this team, he could be a decent second pair d-man, don't get me wrong, he's just not going to be that first pair, stud defensive defenseman that he was supposed to be)

I agree that this fan-base needs to move past the JvR talk, but saying that he HAD to go is ridiculous. He had a total of 3 seasons with the Flyers, 3 friggen seasons, and in those 3 seasons he showed enough flashes to stick with him for another year or two.

Love that Flyers fans are complaining now-a-days that this organization needs to "stick by and develop its young players", but now you're claiming 9 out of 10 fans said a 22 year old JvR had to go lol.
spot on
9/10 saying he had to go? what utter revisionist BS that is.
