2008 kind of ended up being one seeing as how Hodgson isn't here anymore and Erik Karlsson, Jordan Eberle and Tyler Myers were still available when we picked

Patrik Stefan by far he was projected to be a superstar but in my opinion turned out be the biggest bust in NHL draft history.As for us I would have to go for Patrick White by a long shot.

Don't know how Hodgson is a bust regardless of who was picked after him. He'll be a good player in the league, he just needs a fair opportunity.

Biggest bust of all time would have to be Patrick Stefan. He was #1 overall just ahead of the twins.

2007 draft.


Actually the 2002 draft was worse, here's the list from that:
Kiril Koltsov
Denis Grot
Brett Skinner
Lukas Mensator
John Laliberte
Robert Mcvicar
Marc-Andre Roy
Ilia Krikunov
Matt Violin (lol)
Thomas Nussli
Matt Gens.

Yeah, who are those people?

I meant it was a bust for us because not only is the guy we picked not here anymore but we also could have had one of those other 3 guys on our team, not saying Hodgson is a bust or a bad player. But if someone said who do you want Hodgson or Eberle I'd take Eberle in a heartbeat.

... Draft 11 players and accumulate a total of 12 games of NHL experience. Did anyone get held accountable for that pathetic display?

If you want to draft in hindsight, then most picks are busts

Sure. Not because he was a bad pick, bad player, with little real potential but obviously because of you know what.

Surprised everyone seems to be sticking to the 2000s.
The early and mid 90's were a disaster, more than one big time bust.

God this thread makes me sad.

Alexandre Daigle comes to mind when I think of overall draft busts.

Patrick White is definitely one of the biggest busts for the Canucks.

Nope. Rob Mcvicar was a goalie who only played 3 minutes for the Canucks in a game during the 2005-06 season.

I was pretty upset when Eberle was still available when we picked Hodgson. I'd say Patrick White is our biggest bust. But he and Daniel Rahimi did land us Ehrhoff, so I ain't complaining B)

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs
