Tomas Tatar, who's from the same draft year as "already labelled bust" Nazem Kadri hasn't improved much over his three years in the AHL (57 points in 70 games in the 2010 - 2011 season, 58 points in 76 games in the 2011 - 2012 season).
Gustav Nyquist, and Joakim Andersson are both 23 years old, and if they can't crack an NHL roster in the next year or two will be busts.
After scoring 54 points in 55 games in the SM-liiga in the 2010 - 2011 season, Teemu Pulkkinen put up only 37 points in 56 games in the 2011 - 2012 season, and this season has only 3 points in 10 games.
Their only non-junior prospect with much value at this point is Smith.
Somebody clearly didn't watch Nyquist in 2011-12 and has apparently never even heard of Jarnkrok...
