    I just got an idea for a thread. It will be about the biggest busts that you've seen in the last 10 years.

    I'll do my team:

    Louis Leblanc:

    Louis Leblanc was selected 18th overall in the 2009 NHL entry draft by the Montreal Canadiens. He played 50 games and had 5 goals and 10 points in the NHL. He retired during the 2016 summer.

    Players selected after him in 2009: Chris Kreider, Marcus Johansson, Ryan O'Reilly

    David Fischer:
    upload_2016-8-31_16-43-15.png

    David Fischer was drafted 20th overall in the 2006 NHL entry draft by Montreal. He didn't play any single game in the NHL.

    Players selected after him in 2006: Claude Giroux, Nikolay Kulemin, Jeff Petry

    Danny Kristo:
    upload_2016-8-31_16-48-55.png

    Danny Kristo was selected 56th overall in the 2008 NHL entry draft. He didn't play any single game in the NHL. He was traded to the New York Rangers for Christian Thomas on July 2nd 2013.

    Players selected after him in 2008: Jimmy Hayes, Jori Lethera, Adam Henrique

    That's it for my message. Let me know your team's biggest busts since 10 years and let's have fun about it!

    okay and?
    He is a bust because he was drafted high but at least he is able to play in the NHL.

    Cody Hodgson is one of the biggest busts ever. He was supposed to be a really special player but he never got better! Patrick White and Patrick McNally? Didn't know about them :lol

    Shinkaruk is far from being a bust, it's not because a few players after him are better that he's a bust.

    They sould've draft Kreider instead of Paajarvi and Faulk instead of Pitlick. They were probably better when they drafted them though.

    The late 90's and early 00's were filled with a terrible Hawks management taking a shitstorm of terrible, European players with high picks, who never played much in the NHL.

    Then, there are the more recent ones:

    2004, 3rd overall: Cam Barker

    2005, 7th overall: Jack Skille

    2008, 11th overall: Kyle Beach

    Looks like I might be adding Mark McNeil to this list soon.

    Chet Pickard 18th overall by the Nashville Predators 2008
    Brian Finley 6th overall by the Nashville Predators 1999
    Austin Watson 18th overall by the Nashville Predators 2010 (However I still have a little hope in him)
    Jonathon Blum 23rd overall by the Nashville Predators 2007
    Ryan Parent 18th overall by the Nashville Predators 2005
    Scottie Upshall 6th overall by the Nashville Predators 2002 (I like him doh, but he did nothing for us)

    So what I learned from this if the Preds ever have a 18th overall pick we should just trade it.

    Wow these are bad picks :lol
    Jared Cowen was supposed to be something really special. I'm sad he didn't grew like he was supposed to. And Daigle...
    Blum, Parent and Upshall... I didn't know they were drafted so high! Bad picks by Nashville!
