2.Have some fans transferred the worrying, nailbiting and overreaction over Strome early in the season, to Reinhart ?
You are describing two different groups of people. Their are also the neutrals. I remember the arguments prior to the draft on precisely this. I was not in the "Reinhart is what I wanted" group.

I think it comes down to upside. Prospects with questionable upside should not have high expectations. #4 over picks come with high expectations no matter who is picked.
