Not at all...but if you remember the year he was drafted...he was slated to be "the next one".

He was supposed to be better than any player in that draft by a HUUUUUGE margin and was to have his name mentioned with the likes of Gretzky and Lemieux.

Now...considering that is what he was supposed to be...and what he is right now...he's a bust.

Actually, I dont' think that it's possible for him to shed the "bust" image he has considering what he was supposed to be.

No way in Hell he can unless all of a sudden he becomes what he was supposed to be all of a sudden and takes over the NHL.

The chances of that happening are even slimmer than the chances that Patrick Lalime making a clutch save
