Matt Corrente's "Worst Case" is a player who never makes the NHL. He can either be a great defenseman, a mediocre one, or a guy who never touches the ice. He's far too unpredictible to be a less skilled Rafalski at his WORST.

I am sorry but Backstrom is easily the best player out of the 2006 prospect draft whether you like it or not.

What a crippling way to support an argument. Must be the language barrier.

It's tough to say what a potential worst case would be, because a bust is a bust IMO.
Derick Brassard cites Daniel Briere as his role model.
That little vampire has influence over everyone... it's horrible.
And I am talking about Daniel.

I'm sorry but some of these posts are very funny,

Some of these worst cast scenarios are pretty absurd, I mean I see names like Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Ohlund, Jovanovski, and so on, I'm sorry but this is way too much, how about the word "Bust"? because that's a worst case scenario for every prospect out there even if it was Erik Johnson, Nicklas Backstrom, or whatever, sure these guys have a great potential, but sometimes even the best of them youngsters bust out.

His skating is better compared to Jovo than Ohlund.

People won't even be thinking any of these players might bust until...I'd say at least the summer of 2008.

Wow, is Mueller that versatile? Oates and Kozlov are completely different players in the style they play (ed).

At this point it's looking good for you guys at least, he's proving even though he's been hurt that he's one of the best skaters/goal scorers in the league.

As for Mueller, I'd say more like:

Best case: Mats Sundin
Worst case: Matt Oates

Mueller's upside to me is like a two-way version of Craig Janney with a better work ethic. I don't see him in the same mold as Mats Sundin.
Viktor Kozlov as a worst case scenario? Give me a ****ing break.
