Almost every time I log on here I'm amazed at how posters so extremely over-rate Wild prospects.
I get amazed with the finality with which obviously fickle people speak about kids who aren't old enough to buy beer without false identification.

Larsson seems to be a guaranteed hoss at the moment (which I agree with, every time I've seen him play there's consistent ruckus around the opponent's net that he's right in the middle of), while Phillips is completely dismissed/written off/derided despite getting the puck on net at a slightly lesser rate than Coyle and slightly better rate than Larsson (he's 5th on the team in shots on goal behind Zucker, Fontaine, McIntyre and Kampfer). I get that it's frustrating not to see the points there, but were people expecting him to keep pace or outproduce Larsson despite being a year behind him, not playing with the same caliber linemates and being expected to focus on aspects of his game that don't necessarily show up in the box score?
