This seems to happen quite often:

I'm not sure I understand. Are you saying we shouldn't be optimistic about the career of future hall of famer Tomas Hertl? I mean, just because he'll shatter every scoring record in Sharks history doesn't mean we should start being afraid of what his numerous all-star caliber seasons in San Jose will hold. Nor do I think we're getting ahead of ourselves and annointing this sure-fire savior and multi-time Art Ross winner as one of the game's eventual elite.
