Look, if you believe that I'm claiming people around him were calling him a sure-fire NHLer, then you're exaggerating
Honestly though, people in general were pretty high on him. In particular, I remember a lot of this coming after a Meltzer article detailing him.
People were particularly excited about him making the jump to the AHL as well, far more than a number of other comparable prospects on his level from various leagues.
I'm not saying it's a bad thing to like the guy. People seemed to like him and got excited about his potential.
There are other players I do that for. I never saw it in Lauridsen.
