What's wrong with that exactly?

Leaf fans have a great young prospect to be excited about. Good for them.

Arguably the best Leaf prospect since Wendle Clark.
No one since has made any comparisons to Orr and Reilly. On any level, other then their number. But if you can find it, by all means bring it up so we can all have a laugh.

What I think your mistaken with is volume of hype, not what is actually said. People aren't touting him to be any more then what the scouts have said. Top pairing potential, if he can develop a smart shut down game or nasty side, maybe a #1D. Nothing ridiculous about it. He does have elite skating and puck moving skills and will quite likely put up solid numbers for a Dman in the NHL.

We as leaf fans are sorry that there is so many of us talking about one of the VERY few bright spots in our organization. Go and enjoy your playoffs, and stop concentrating on our prospect hype.
