no, but it is a reflection on how people in the hockey know rate his potential.

would you have been happy for a busto-mcdo trade straight up? No... Why? Because Busto is a fringe prospect rated poorly by those who know.

wether McDo turns out good, great or a complete bust, right now he's still viewed as a top pairing blue chip prospect.

that's why its insane that he was included in a deal for Gomez, a guy that is very good, not great, and who is only a marginal upgrade on Koivu, at twice the price.
