Can't believe he's not even listed there

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.

I remember getting his autograph at a card show in 93... I was probably the only Sens fan in Montreal, lolz (even though I was still more a Nordiques fan, I only became a true Sens fan in 1997)

Was Jeff Glass over hyped? He played the WJC but I have no idea if he was hyped up.

He was never hyped up at all. He's just another random name like Arttu Luttinen.

Daugavins got more hype than he ever deserved, due to a certain poster's obsession with funny-named players.

Yea Weller wasn't hyped really. People thought he had bottom 6 potential, that's about it.

Another case of the WJC's making a nobody a somebody to a fanbase.

I'm leaning towards Kaigorodov just like all the other old guys who actually remember him.

I also remember Jan Platil getting an awful lot of praise.

As for Daigle, he's wasn't a bust at all. He was ruined by the clowns that ran the team back in the beginning.

616 GP, 129 G, 198 A, 327 PTS, 186 PIM

Those aren't "bust" numbers. Three 20 G & 50 PTS seasons.

He was billed as the second coming of Mario with a mean streak. He was a young kid that walked into a god-awful situation. A team with guys that belonged in the MRSHL, paid a boatload of money and basically fed to the lions.

There is a reason that Ottawa has been super conscious of the way they handle young players since.

Josh Langfeld was supposed to be our Brad Isbister, who was supposed to be the next Todd Bertuzzi.

Petr Schastlivy got a lot of hype, too.

the kaigarodov hype in the local rags and on the radio was insane. The entire city thought we had some future russian superstar.

You know Langfeld wasn't bad for a guy that didn't skate until his teens. He had a bit of touch and was one of those guys that just instinctively knew where to be and when to be there.

He was a long shot all the way. There was no massive hype around him. Isbister was more of a bust than Langfeld was.

Most hype I've seen Regin get is people suggesting if he stays healthy he could be a 20-20 guy. Which is fair imo.
A lot of people were penciling him in as our 2nd line centre for the future well before Turris got here.

He played half decently riding Spezza's coattails for 5 games nearly 3 years ago. Done nothing since.

I don't think anyone said that Daigle was a bust. He was a good NHL player but certainly didn't met expectations who were crazy high for him... That's what happens when you get drafted 1st overall

Not getting into a debate about Peter Regin since it's been beaten to death, but he did produce fairly well in all his NHL career when he wasn't playing on the 4th line with scrubs. Everytime he had skilled linemates with a bit of hockey sense, he produced. I've got a lot of evidence in older threads talking about Regin

You are evidently somewhat biased against him, for some reason. He's a quality hockey player. Health (and Clouston) has been his only problem. If he was an option in this poll, you'd probably be the only one to vote him

Thanks

He's a rookie! And don't look now but Da Costa just exploded with nice peripheral stats: 3 g, 1 a, +4, 5 SOG in his last game for the baby Sens.

Kaigorodov. Even Muckler was saying he would solve our #2 center void at the time. That added a ton of fuel on the Hype fire.

Went with Filatov. Two time loser, on a reclamation project being penciled into a top spot and defended to the bone death by to many people.

Runblad was highly hyped but there was a legit reason, and a lot of it turned into tongue in cheek stuff. Have to see how his career ends up.

I never bought into the Kaigorodov junk, and wasn't around HFBoards so wasn't infected.

I went with Rundblad because he was the big talk of these boards when I first started reading them. In fact one of the main reasons I started reading HF boards was to keep tabs on Rundblad. But, if I was reading these HF boards when Kaigrodov was supposed to make the team that one training camp way back when, I'm sure it would be him. Even Brandon Bochenski garnered a lot of hype the post lockout season. Some people had him slotted in 100% as Heatley and Spezza's winger.
