Selanne's worst season as a pro was with Colorado, where he only produced 32 points in 78 games. He was 33 years old at the time. And given that he had scored 20 or more goals 11 straight seasons (including 3 50+-goal campaigns), I don't think he exactly fits the description. He's more an example of an older player who got rejuvenated than a bust that needed a change of scenery.

To clarify, I interpreted the OP as being a high draft pick with huge expectations that struggled with his original team but later had a huge amount of success after being traded.
