Spezza would probably be 2nd and I'd say Lehner as 3rd. The guys has been hyped a lot but IMO, many people will end up right, like those like me who were hyping Erik Karlsson...

Or was this thread about over-hyped prospects that busted?

Anyway, the list of possible choices suck... how many of those guys were blue-chip prospects? How many were taken in the 1st round?

The only 2 guys with high expectations were Rundblad and Filatov... Kaigorodov became overhyped after the draft because of his KHL success.

Nah those guys have only been "over-hyped" because we were starving for good prospects for about a 5 years span

It's actually cool to have prospects that we can over-hype, even if they don't pan out in the end. It means they at least gave us a bit of hope and excitement (because that's what an entertainment is all about). WE DON'T NEED EVERYONE OF THEM TO PAN OUT ANYWAY, there's so many spots on a hockey team...

HFBoards didn't exist when Daigle was a prospect.
