Not exactly a bust, but not the "Michael Jordan of hockey" either.
Seriously, dude? The guy was one of the best players in the league for the better part of a decade. Won a Rocket Richard trophy. Scored 50 goals one season. Will top 1000 points by the time he's done. Stop trying to come up with a "clever" response and just come up with a real one. BTW, one person making an exaggerated prediction about a player shouldn't mean that the player needs to be judged against that statement forever. "Steven Stamkos will be twice the goal scorer Gretzky ever was by the time he's 25." There, it was just said. Does that make Stamkos a bust if he doesn't live up to that?
Cameron Mann had a ridiculous last year of junior, and I thought he was gonna be a solid top 6 forward at the NHL level. I don't know what happened there.
I had high hopes for Brandon Convery on the Leafs.
Also want to echo Jani Rita. Seemingly had all the tools but could never put it together.
I love seeing Mann come up in these threads. I grew up in Peterborough, and watched him play all his junior games. His talent was so far beyond what was available as competition in the OHL it was hard to believe.
