I was just about to post a question about his ranking. Because when discussing prospects before, I remember a poster here asked if we'd be better off if San Jose drafted Etem over Coyle and that's who we got instead for Burns. And most posters here said Etem is one prospect who appears to be highly ranked in a lot of places but the Wild fans who replied, didn't think he'd amount to becoming anywhere close to his hype / ceiling.

I have never watched any Etem highlights but is that the general consensus here? That's he overhyped?

I will agree with other posters in this thread that Brodin should definitely be ranked a lot higher.
