IMO, the bust label will stick with him, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's justified - he had the bad luck to be drafted in front of some pretty amazing players, but that's the nature of the draft. If Daigle can have some success over the next few seasons, and finish his career with something like 200 goals and 500 points, I think that's too good of a career to be considered a bust. Bust should be reserved for guys that never make it. A disappointment maybe, or the victim of others disappointment due to great ecxpectations, but not a bust -

He's been great for Minnesota, in spite of a midseason slump.
