His performance is not apparent to people who don't watch Norfolk. He doesn't have many points. Ducks fans aren't vocal and singing his praises. Lindholm will not get any positive movement in the general fandom compared to how he was viewed prior to the draft. Looking at his stats, he doesn't look like the best player on the team.

And prior to the draft he was seen as a solid mid-1st round pick. Guys like Grigorenko and Forsberg will continue to be seen as top-level guys because of the pre-draft hype.

It's also not an anti-Anaheim thing. We benefited from it too with Fowler.
