Forbort is one of those typical prospects that gets overrated because of his size.
Perhaps you are right, and honestly it wouldn't shock me if Forbort flops. I don't expect it, I think he'll amount to something, but it wouldn't be a huge shock if he didn't.

That said, I'll still stand by my point that it's rather ridiculous to say a kid with three career goals in the NHL is guaranteed to be >>>>>> better than Forbort, who no one has seen at the pro level, nevermind NHL level.
