It is FAR too early to label Jon DiSalvatore a "bust". The kid hasn't even been given HALF a chance at the NHL level (3 games under the Turnip's guidance does NOT constitute a "chance"). I still contend that, given an actual chance, the kid could stick as a better than average 3/4 liner. Until he's actually GIVEN that chance and failed, I can't see ANY logical way to label the guy a bust (BTW, bringing up Sejna was JD's move, not Murrray's; I can tell you with absolute certainty that Sejna was 4th on Murray's list of callups behind King, Whitfield and Disalvatore based on the weekend Murray took to scout Peoria).

. Reason: Removed references to deleted posts; left analysis of DiSalvatore, although probably better suited to a different thread
