Has Daigle managed to erase the bust image this season?

Think of a player hyped more than Ovechkyn is now. Now, imagine him after a few seasons being traded for crap, then a year or two after, being in the AHL. Think of a player so hyped Ottawa was offered a good chunk of the Lindros trade for him. Think of a plyer so hyped that the local paper had the "Daigle Cup", updating the race for last place between Ottawa and SJ (an epic battle that was, with each side finishing with 24 pts, Ottawa won the tiebreaker by having fewer wins, and got the #1 pick). The player whose contract almost singlehandedly gave the NHL the rookie salary cap.
This player would, LITTERALLY have to win a couple of scoring championships to not be a bust, and that ain't happening. As such, Daigle = BUST.
That doesn't take away from his play for the Wild this year, but the guy is still a bust.....
