Its fine, nobody gives Ducks prospects respect until the leave the Ducks (Tangradi, Schultz, Gardiner). If Etem was a Canadian team's prospect he would be hyped to the point of a top 10 prospect.
Etem's not nearly on the same level as Granlund, yet MiG didn't get an honorable mention either. It has nothing to do with "disrespect to the Ducks" and everything to do with the fact that there's significant concern whether Etem's play will be able to translate to the NHL level. Obviously his 4 games, 1 point at the AHL level isn't a sufficient sample to draw from, but it's not like he's proven he'll even make the NHL.
