Does anyone else think the Monster might NOT be the next Lundqvist?

There was a lot of hype surrounding him because of the Toronto Media angle.
I know for Dallas, it was never a question of him coming over and being ready to step in. It was that he was a solid goaltender, huge upside, who could be a very dependable backup and likely become a starter down the road. That's how it was for most teams.
Most hockey markets weren't expecting Gustavsson to become the next big thing right away, but everyone in Toronto seems certain of it.
I'm not saying he won't be great, but I still wish people would stop setting themselves up for disappointment.
