Seriously. I swear leaf fans aren’t allowed to be excited about literally ANYTHING. (Prospects, Brodie, Cup chances...)

Could be bait

A lot of hot takes here, pretty much everyone here has barely played but yet they're overrated noice

At least mention actual prospects that have played enough to show their skills and turned out to be disappointing IE Mittelstadt

So now we can judge freshly drafted, 18-year olds prospects, nice

Players that have played enough to show their skills aren't prospects anymore

Nothing wrong with him imo. I just compare him to Lukas Dotsal who is a year younger posting much, much better numbers in the same league this year and I see Dotsal get almost zero hype compared to UPL.

TBF I think UPL will still be a starter in the NHL, just not as good as some make him out to be

I thought he was overrated the entire pre-draft process myself, I didnt see Guhle as a 1st round talent

Are you writing off luukkonen as a potential starting nhl goalie? Or do you think sabres fans over value a starting goaltender prospect?
What's your issue with bouchard?

Overvalue, I think all of these guys will still become NHL players

How long have you been scouting nhl talent for? It must be nice to travel and see all those games to get a real feel for that young talent.

He’ll be good, overhyped doesn’t mean bad, but he was kind of terrible in Rochester last year and around average in the ECHL

People thinking UPL will be a top 5 goalie in the future, people thinking Robertson will be the first line LW, etc.

Also, just a reminder overrated or overhyped doesn’t mean bad, and people have differing opinions than others on prospects. Just cuz the thread starter or I aren’t a huge fan of the prospect doesn’t mean they won’t be good

It is, just pretty bold to discern wether someone is "overrated" in the draft, your saying that peoples whose job it is to discern that are wrong, with no credentials over evidence. Your entitled to an opinion but maybe give a guy a chance before you call him overrated if your not qualified. That's all im saying.

I never said anyone was wrong. You assume because I think he is overrated I think they are wrong which isnt the case. Overrated doesnt mean bad at all, it just means I'm not as high on him as others. I could be wrong, I could be right who knows. Obviously NHL scouts know a hell of a lot more than me and anyone on this site. He's had a chance, I'm basing my opinion off of his WHL play and in my opinion which is ultimately worthless just like anyone on here he is overrated

Yeah, a lot of fans think he's garbage, he can't skate, etc. How is that overrated?
