It's a year away from his draft year and he's "tracking towards being a bust"? Give me a break.

It's ridiculous how people will bend over backwards to defend and make excuses for some of our prospects (cough Avtsin) but can't wait to drag down others just to be able to say "I told you so".
And then some of us watched him play in some of those games, and felt like maybe he didn't look like that great a pick. Prospects will be prospects. I personally don't hold out any hope for Avstin, though. I want to tell people I was wrong about Tinordi, and that I was right about Chipchura. I have some hope of the former, precious little of the latter anymore.
