I think too many people are seeing who's the better player now, and going with that.

Now i'm not advocating that zib will be better then silf. I just think a lot of people are comparing them against each other now, when one is 19, and one is 22, that isn't fair.

I'm in the camp of if you asked me who will be the better player of lehner, zib, silf, noe, pum etc, i honestly wouldn't put money on any of them because it's too tough to tell. They're all pretty damn solid prospects and i'm happy to have em all.
Comparisons and projections are two different things IMO.

I have no problem with people comparing Couturier or Silf to Zib.

However I find the quantum leap some are making, in terms of career projections, from a relatively small amount of comparative data less than objective.
