Being "disappointed" with anything less than a player achieving the absolute pinnacle of his potential is not a realistic way to view prospects, but it's a great way to consistently set yourself up to be let down. Being a high draft pick is not a guarantee of success in the NHL.

Potential is such a nebulous idea. Considering how many top 10 picks either wash out or become mediocre players, I don't see how one could be disappointed with a 60+ point, good defensive player. Most draftees would kill to have a career like that.
