I've heard this too.

I will say this, Busch has some skills and many people here were a wee bit surprised that he didn't get drafted. In fact, in his draft year, his coach Pierre Pagé, former Nordiques and North Stars coach, said, "If Busch isn't drafted, then the scouts/NHL don't know what the heck they're doing".

He wasn't, but he's continued to develop and has as good a shot at making it in North America as any non-drafted German would.
