As I pointed out recently, Zadina is about middle of the pack in that list of 6th overall picks.

I take from that 2 things:

1. Even if he stays there he is certainly not a bust relative to his draft position.

2. If half of 6th overall draft picks turn out to be bottom half of the roster NHLers or worse, Zadina can't be a bust because you can't apply the term "bust" to such a large number. Busts are supposed to be rare. Not half of the players.

All of this AND:

You kind of have to bust or show signs of busting before you're a bust!

By this age, Fedorov, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Mantha, and Larkin did not have as many GP or Points in the NHL.

Come at me with "But Yzerman" did.

So like half of 6th overall picks never reach their potential? Hmmmmm

I have a lot of love for Krug. From the same area of Michigan as me. Was the captain of the MSU hockey team when I was there. Would be thrilled to bring him home again. Like Raffi round two.

That said, Krug would be a big ******* mistake. This team is in no way ready to go all in on big UFAs. And Krug is an undersized PP specialist who's going to command a kings ransom. Krug has a flashing neon sign over his head that says mistake.

A CRL post like by krsmith, what kind of unholy alliance is this lol

None of the players you listed were ranked top 3 or drafted top 6 aside from Yzerman, so yea there's that.

Zadina is the only one on your list that isn't man-made.

can we please stop talking about zadina who scored at a 0.54 PPG clip (albeit in a small sample) as a 20-year-old on a team that couldn't score

You first.

considering we know the players they turned out to be, that means a whole lot of nothing.
