I've been watching hockey for almost 20 years and one of the interesting things about that is I've been around long enough to watch an entire career cycle, being able to watch many prospects get scouted, drafted, make it to the NHL and also retire. Being on hfboards and hockeysfuture, it's fun to counterbalance the gushing statistical and career projects and comparisons for prospects with the hindsight evaluations of who fell short. That said, what players or groups of players and cores did you have high expectations for that ultimately fell short? Some examples I can think of would be the Winnipeg Jets of the mid 90s, who at one point had Alexei Zhamnov, Keith Tkachuk, Teemu Selanne, Boris Mironov, Nikolai Khabibulin and a freshly drafted Shane Doan. It seemed like they had a bright future but things ultimately did not work out in any way shape or form for that team/franchise/city. Other examples would be the Legion of Doom led Philadelphia Flyers, or the Joe Thornton/Sergei Samsonov core the Bruins assembled at the 1997 draft. So in your experience, what are players and teams that ended up disappointing you?
