Primarily because no one has seen him play on a regular weekly basis. ES rumours started immediately because "he's finally here in Canada" is what came to everyones mind and he put his best game on..it was Silverstick after all. However, all of the presumed top prospects did the same. The US most likely has a different opinion. The hotel stay and OT is irrelevant..players in the States are used to that and know how to prepare for extensive travel time.
No that is wrong. The ES rumours started because the 14 yr old kid skates like an NHL defenseman and will instantly be the best skater in the OHL when or if he gets there. To say nothing of his stick sticks and size. He has 2 more gears than any other kid.
