It's expected a late 2nd won't make it. From that perspective, it's great when they turn out into quality NHLer and does not deserve disapointment or worse when they don't.

Only a top 10 pick can truly 'bust' in my opinion.
Well I think there can be busts after the top 10, but the standard is different. Like Kostitsyn, bad pick and a disappointment sure, but I wouldn't really call him a "bust". Now if he was a top 3 pick on the other hand, sure.

But then you have a guy like David Fischer, he was picked 20th but I'd still call him a bust because a first round pick should at least make the AHL.
