When he was mentioned as a top 5 draft prospect a year prior to his draft year, and scores a grand total of 139 points in 137 games, yeah that's way overrated. 139 points in 3 Junior seasons (46 points a season average), yes overrated. People were saying he was an elite talent, so yeah, overrated.

He's never proven to be able to live up to the huge hype surrounding him. If he wasn't Russian, there would never had been the hype, if he were Canadian, you'd hardly ever hear about him, because he has never impressed, never dominated anywhere.
