I also look at it from the perspective that he's a 2nd round pick, and 70% of 2nd rounders never play 100 games in the NHL--Luke already has 71 in his pocket--and around 50% don't play a single game there. Through that lens, it's a bit tough for me to ever call him a "bust."
I wasn't disagreeing with you. Add "but time will tell if he gets this or not" to the last sentence in my previous post. I was simply stating what I found worrisome about Adam which went along with the essence of the thread. I'll never call him a bust, as in my eyes that term is reserved for far more disappointing draft picks than him (see Heisten; or Fabry if we're talking only second-rounders).
