I have been watching a lot of philly games over the last month or so and I must say I have been very impressed with J-Vo. I have held onto this kid for years now and have been expecting big things ever since he dominated the Q for 2 seasons after going 1st overall in the CHL Import draft in 2006 (112 GP, 56-131-187 in his only 2 seasons). He has showed flashes of his immense potential since coming into the league as a 19 year old, but the last month or so has me thinking he is on the verge of putting it all together.
He is showing a willingness to use his ideal 6'1 205 lb frame and is being very confident and patient with the puck on his stick. He has entrenched himself on the point of the top pp unit and over the last 10 games (reg season and playoffs) he has posted:
5-9-14, +3, 10 PIM, 5 PPP, 34 SOG.
I know it's a small sample size but from the viewings I've had I feel confident in saying he is poised to break through the 60 pt barrier next year and long term I think he will find himself riding shotgun with Giroux (once jagr is gone).
