I'd actually agree that Stone is overhyped by Sens fans. And even some non-sens fans due to his WJC play.
Don't get me wrong, I love the kid, and think he is an insane steal where we got him. BUT I feel like people are acting like he will be amazing and an elite player. I see him being a great 3rd liner, realistically. Or possibly a second liner, who is more defensive-minded and a bit grittier. Which is not a bad thing. I just don't think he's going to be lighting it up in the points department right off the bat.
And if he does, I'll eat my words. Either way, I think he will definitely be a help on the team. But just feel like some people around Ottawa just see him as so much more than what he probably will be (and that isn't to knock Stone at all).
