Not really a good gauge there Joey..

You are calling his a bust based on hype, and I see the point your getting at ...but his expectations may not be reached but calling him a bust is unfair... He has also had major knee surgeries ala Antropov and has missed considerable developement time including most of last year..

He is an all round player and is not really expected to put up Forsberg type numbers but his style of physical play is similar but he is not a scoring machine ... but if you get a chance to watch him you will see he is far from what a person would call a bust, like say an Alexander Daigle...
