I haven't heard anything remotely approaching "hype" around Fischer yet. A few encouraging comments from the development camp and the US junior camp, but nothing that ever approached "hype". Hainsey had more hype for sure. Even then, it wasn't much, certainly nothing even remotely near the scale of Latendresse or even the growing Grabovski or post-draft Kostitsyn "hype".

And if anything, I would presume/predict that Fischer will have a very quiet and seemingly underwhelming year that will preclude him from getting any hype for quite a while to come. Things will start to build for him a couple years from now.
