Sorry, but though last year he did well, I don't expect a repeat. Furthermore, I think it's best for his sake and the organizations sake that he sit out the rest of the year and get healthy for next year. Then he can prove if he's really what he showed flashes of. I'm 50/50 on him now.
JVR would be an instant upgrade over Harry z and Holmstrom. He also would come back with the mind set of havuing to prove something.
His expected return would be later in the series, possibly game 4 or later.
