LOL, nothing about jvr is reminiscent of a 2nd line soft powerforward. Hes a proven top 6 power forward/grinder that gets to the dirty areas in order to score by any means necessary, if people think hes so bad, maybe you should stop making proposals. I know the idea of giving something of value to receive something of value is foreign around here, but ignorance is just a killer.
I don't know what he was like in Philly but whenever i saw him in Toronto he was noticeably strong getting to the net and staying there.
They used him differently i believe. In Philly they just told him to go be a 2nd overall pick and in Toronto they told him to get comfortable in front of the net.
I don't know.
He has no idea what he's talking about. Everytime he was on the PP, he was parked in front of the net battling the top defenseman down low night in and night out. I could go on, but I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt in it that you actually watch games.
He's a very skilled, big, yet speedy top 6 winger. Not a 4th line grinder.
