Here is one from the Russian 2003 WJC Champions. Igor Grigorenko along with Trubachev led the tournament in points (10 in 6 games). Grigorenko was MVP in the final against Canada. A lot of potential until he was involved in a serious car accident. He suffered a broken left thigh bone and two fractures in his left shin bone. In addition, complications arose and he developed a fat embolism in his left lung, which is a potentially fatal condition, think he would have been a special player if not for his injury. Perezhogin also stood out in the 2003 WJC, 9 points in 6 games. The one that ended up turning into a superstar on that team was a 17 year old by the name of Alexander Ovechkin (6 goals in 6 games).
that entire 2003 team was amazing and then Tyutin and Ovechkin are the only ones to have made the NHL. in Ovechkin's case, he played on the 3rd or 4th line and I think his points came against one of the smaller teams in round robin. it was the other guys who carried the team.

A lot of guys do well at the junior level but never make it anywhere.

Oskar Osala
Felix Schutz
Alexander Bumagin (greatest surname ever by the way)

Marek Slovak
Arnaud Jacquernet

Lauri Tukonen
Stanislav Lascek


I could go on. The leading scorer chart of most tournaments is filled with guys who never made it but could put up points at the Junior level.

how is cody a bust?

Injured then not developed by Viggy, probably won't be a star but will be a top 6 player and get an NHL pension.

Came to post Esposito. Maybe I had unrealistic expectations for him, but he looked so good during the juniors!

Lots of good choices so far. My pick:


Ari Ahonen: He was sooo good and not only he was making the saves; he was looking like an NHL goalie. I would have bet a lot on his NHL success. Failed to dominate in the AHL and was behind Brodeur...

I don't think you can say he busted. NHL-wise maybe, but he's putting up some unreal numbers in the KHL

Didn't Brodeur also treat his backups like complete **** and make them want to not be apart of the organization? I seem to remember hearing that years ago.
