Huzzah, I'm a tool.
At least you have the courage to admit it.

In all seriousness we really don't need to go over this again. Certain things should be pretty clear by now. 1) People will always cheer a little harder for the hometown boy, that's only natural 2) Latendresse has been severly overhyped by certain media outlets 3) There has been a backlash against this hype. In the end nothing really special has happened.

Big deal, people like the hometown boy. And yeah people got excited and overrated him but what are you going to do. Go to any team and they're overrating their hometown players.
