Forecaster's low opinion of O'Sullivan

Was lloking at the Forecaster hockey magazine, and was surprised to see O'Sullivan was not even one of their top ten rookie of the year candidates. He was ranked 14th or so.

Worse, they projected him to net about 9 goals and 22 points in 50 games or so, tied with Nick Schultz and behind Steve Veilluex.

How's that for a lack of respect?


Although I have to admit I hope they're right

Well what do you expect when the Wild essentially stuffed him into the back corner of their franchise for a few years.

What's this mean? He tore up the AHL last year, winning ROY honors and played pretty good minutes on their main affiliate.

Things like that I look at, I think, "gee...how interesting" and I move on. That's all.
