I don't know why your searching for any hidden meaning in a straightforward statement. It's an indictment of fan mentality.

I've already seen people write off Vincour as anything more than a 4th liner. It's an accurate observation: Defending Big D, to a lesser extent here, and other Dallas centric hockey spots on the web have people expressing that opinion.

A. Smith is a fine prospect. I was referring to that fact that some people get mesmerized by a prospect because he's dominating a lesser league while at the same time get down on a younger prospect with a slower development in the NHL.

That statement had nothing do with Austin Smith's ability or his potential, and everything to do with fan's bandwagon mentality. I actually feel bad for Austin Smith. If he doesn't dominate the AHL in a timely manner, fans will be on him too.
