While the hype might have gotten out of hand, kinda weird for the Ghost hate. The guy has shown NOTHING that shows he is regressing. He is constantly improving and his defense is 10 fold what it was before he was drafted. If anything we should be excited he is improving.

WAYYYY to many people stare at where players are drafted.
It's kind of tough to gauge because usually the Flyers don't have one of their top prospects playing in the NCAA.

IIRC with JVR they didn't even want him to go UNH in the first place, they wanted to sign him & have him head to the OHL. Then they tried to sign him again after his first year & send him to the AHL but he wanted to stay an extra year at UNH.

JVR was a lot more of high-end prospect at that time than Gostisbehere is at this point. JVR was also easier to get a read on being a forward. JVR was also dominant in the NCAA from day 1, there was no way in hell he was going to stay for four years.

Gostisbehere had a good year in his second year in college, an extra year there won't hurt (I think he signs after this year despite what he says now).
