I think the hype started building after his flashy plays against not so sub-par opponents in the KHL the season before, as a 18-year old. Which is pretty impressive and not all that "baseless".

NT, obviously, is a huge stretch at this point but overall kid can indeed become a star at the KHL level sooner or later.
