I know all about his story, trust me, Nordiques fan here.

It just goes further to show that you can certainly have a prospect that looks like a world beater in junior hockey but you just don't know what's going to happen at the NHL level and that even the very best prospects still come with a certain amount of risk. Whether the prospect's skill doesn't translate to the NHL level, the guy has issues with drugs/alcohol or he decides he wants to be a rock star instead and quits, the end result is still the same for team giving up a proven asset for that prospect.
