James van Riemsdyk Should Start The Season In AHL

from Anthony SanFilippo of the Daily Times,

He has been touted as the next John LeClair, a big-bodied American power forward with a nose for the net.

His arrival has been greatly anticipated. He already goes by a nickname to most supporters — his initials, JVR.

He holds the promise of a great future. And considering the moves the Flyers made this offseason, bringing in veterans like Chris Pronger, a team-oriented grinder like Ian Laperriere, and an emotional goalie like Ray Emery, the organization believes that future is now.

Which is why van Riemsdyk would be better served starting the season in the American Hockey League with the Adirondack Phantoms.
