Brendl is my pick, simply because he was such a waste of pure talent. So highly touted and so much natural skill, but barely even made an impact in the AHL, let alone the NHL.

Jessiman is second, but more so because he was a reach at #12. I believe his poor development set him back considerably, but regardless, it would have been nice to have a Getzlaf or Parise in the lineup.

Biggest FA bust is Redden. Unfortunately, that's more on Sather than it is on Redden. Throwing that kind of deal at him was asinine. Anyone with a brain knew that he was in the twilight of his career. I wanted him as a mentor for our D, i.e. 2 or 3 years at $3-3.5M per, but once he signed that huge deal, I knew we were screwed.
