This is true not just for him. I've been meaning to say this in prior posts, but I couldn't word it well, and thank you for doing it.
It seems like with non-blue chip prospects, the less fans know, the more they value a prospect because they let their imagination run wild.
Thus for instances, if we have two big guys with limited skill and one is close to being a 4th liner while the other is still in juniors, the fans will overwhelming pick the guy in juniors, even though he has almost no chance of being more than a 4th liner and will likely be the next Justin Soryal.
