    Who was the last biggest first round bust we drafted besides Bura? I'm sure there might be one but I just can't think of it right now and I'm at work.

    Bura should take some showcase lessons from this.

    26 points a year plus a cup and hopefully something back in trade for the 23rd pick isn't really a bust.

    Don't get either. He seems like a player that can conribute in the playoffs if given time to work on some chemistry with bottom-6. Instead, they give a sweater to DSP and CS18.

    I don't think you can consider him a bust. There's plenty of busts taken that year in the 1st round but he's not one of them. He's pretty bad these days though.

    Definitely Anton Gustafsson in 2008.

    And I agree that it may be premature to deem Bura a bust, but so far he's not doing what you'd expect from a first rounder. A bunch of them never produce even at Bura's level, so he hasn't been a complete bust.

    32 players from that draft have 50+ points, 30 players from the previous draft have 70+ points, it's about what you'd expect at this point from a mid 1st and he was a late 1st.

    Anton gustafsson or however you spell it. Seemed like they drafted him and then forgot he was Caps property

    I'm thinking Boyd and even Stephenson may be trade bait so they're being showcased.

    I like Cali's speculation. Maybe package up Burky with Steviewonder? Give me more minutes from Jaskin & Dowd please.
