The first one that comes to mind for me is Stefan Ruzicka. I had him pegged as a second line winger who could score 25-30 goals. I was impressed with his coming over to North America and played in the OHL to develop even prior to the draft. He was from the amazing 2003 draft, had very good numbers in the OHL, and even pretty good numbers with the Phantoms. But obviously it just never translated. Big disappointment there.

I disappointment with what happened with Pitakanen. I don't know if failed to make it is the right way to put it though. He hasn't been the elite defenseman we expect other than his second season here. I'm still kind of pissed about that trade that shipped him out of here. It was pretty awful.
