The Whale team may not be as important as the Rangers(obviously), but they still want good players down their so there is a winning environment for other prospects we draft later on.

Anyway, we all have a different definition of a bust, but IMO a bust is a player who had good potential to be a NHL regular player, and did not live up to that. Not every single draftee who did not make the NHL. Again just my opinion, don't kill me!
so i guess the Rangers considered Callahan a longshot to make it when they picked him in the 4th round.. and Girardi was a longshot since he never got drafted. Red Wings had some good long shot picks in Zetterberg and Datsyuk. its all about scouting and player development...
