It is sort of funny. For sure it's some sort of backlash directed at the media hype of a few years back. The idea that because some have overhyped his abilities, others must now undervalue him in an attempt to balance out the universe. Unfortunate, but there seems to be so many examples of this with fans of the team.

The kid is starting off the year really well. He's creating things, getting himself in positions to get chances to score, and he's racked up 4 points in 4 games. Credit where credit is due, with the understanding that this is still a player in development that will make mistakes and have off nights. But based on the few games so far, I'd have no problem projecting that he'll have his best season yet.
