          Win or lose, JvR is earning his NHL playoff wings tonight with a goal, SOG's and nifty passes.

            He's having a good game thats for sure. What is it with these Boston teams and their 3-0 leads (see Boston Bruins, BC Eagles)?

              JvR looks great. Why couldn't he do this in college?

                Fair question. There are probably a bunch of reasons. Three possible explanations that come to mind are:
                (1) He's back to playing left wing which is probably his more "natural" position.
                (2) He's been throwing many more body checks in the pros than he did at UNH. I think playing physical is the accepted expectation in the NHL while a college player, especially in Hockey East, can get by without playing the body as much. Why sacrifice your body in the college game when you are not getting paid many thousands of dollars to do so?
                (3) More experience, practice, coaching, etc.

                  JVR looked good in one out of seven games. Just like college...

                    I'm sure it also helps that he is playing with higher caliber players than he was at UNH.

                      By the same token, the caliber of the opposing players (e.g., Zdeno Chara, Tuukka Rask, etc.) is also higher than in college.

                        Very true!

                          I'm pretty sure he scored at least one goal, took some shots on net, and made some nifty passes in college.

                            I'm as big a JVR apologist as you'll find on these forums, but I'm pretty sure he didn't throw the body regularly, win puck battles against one of the three best defensemen in the game and win eight playoff games (and counting) during his rookie season at UNH. Congrats to Reemer and the Flyers for showing a lot of heart in a historic comeback. Whatever success he has in the show will reflect highly on the UNH program, and you have to admire a kid that is already giving back to the school (in numerous ways) less than a year after he left.

                              That would probably be why he went to UNH for 2 years instead of going right to Philly. Needed to learn and grow.

                                No doubt, but I was referring specifically to the points CHC mentioned in the post Noreaster quoted.

                                (And you could have left of the "(and counting)"; yes, the Flyers won tonight, making it 9, but in college, he couldn't have won more than 8 (not to mention the single-elimination format in college).)
