A reality of the game. Some people never develop into they were projected to. Its worse if you are put onto a bad team. Yakupov is one example. The guy who went second in that draft is another.
It also happens on teams that have depth as well. They never really pan out or crack the line up and are stuck as great AHL players.
There have been worse busts, with better picks - at least we got something super useful out of him (JVR).
Yeah I know, just disappointing to think back to how horrific management had been at drafting before Reilly and Schenn is a reminder of that to me.
