If the player's name is not Aladeen then he is a bust!

I have some Aladeen news and some Aladeen news... The word bust was replaced by Aladeen, but the Aladeen news is anyone with the supreme beard could never become an Aladeen.

My list (for whatever reason I already had like a half written up list of the worst picks of all-time, so I just did a little bit of work to make this one).
Lars Jonsson gets a bit of a pass since Boston was rewarded a 2nd round pick in 2006 for compensation for being unable to sign him. The compensation pick wasn't very good (Yury Alexandrov... yeah), but added onto the fact that 2000 was just an awful draft year, I felt like I would cut him some slack.

10
Blake Wheeler (RW) drafted 5th Overall in 2004 by the Phoenix Coyotes
Like Justin Schultz this year, Wheeler became a FA after completing University, where he signed with Boston. A good player, but a bad pick for the Coyotes.


Just because the player doesn't end up playing for the team that draft them...then they are a bust? I guess Eric Lindros future hall of famer was a bust also..

He's gone to the KHL for the 2012-13 season and has 3 points in 2 games (2 goals). Last year he was close a point per game in the AHL. And he's only 22.

He's been a major bust so far, but he could still revive his career. You never know.

Pavel Brendl
Drafted in 1999. 4th Overall.
245 points in 129 WHL games.

Looked like a future superstar but never flourished in the NHL. Only having 22 points in 78 games with 3 teams.

Its amazing how some people wanted to trade Bieksa for this guy before the 2010-11season. I wonder if Ottawa would be willing to give him up for the right price.

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

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

1. Brent Krahn, 9th overall in 2000 by the Calgary Flames

Disregarding the clear-as-day precedents that show drafting a goaltender in the first round rarely pays off, former Flames GM Craig Button looked between the pipes at the 2000 draft, drafting Brent Krahn, who was NHL's Central Scouting Service's top ranked puck-stopper.


Doesn't surprise me at all that it was Button.
