Ernie Moser, the original bust.

He had a 91 point season with the Flint Generals but never managed to crack an NHL roster.

True. But at least in that case Stellick hadn't just gotten the job.

That's also true, but it wasn't like he was being provided with the full breadth of information he should have had. He was also basically a completely unqualified puppet for Ballard.

Yeah. And I'm pretty willing to believe that Ballard's craziness got exponentially worse towards the end there.

In conclusion I really hope they're poking Ballard with the rustiest of pitchforks tonight.

For me is almost a tie: Luca Cereda and Tyler Biggs.
the tie breaker is that Biggs proved to be a bust, while Luca's injury forced him out of his dream.
A.K.A Gardiner51, Changed back to Kaberle15 now that he is retired.

Luca had heart problems of some sort, he is still a legend in Switzerland.

What are we considering a bust? Convery had injury issues, multiple surgeries and concussion problems that definitely weren't diagnosed properly. Is this a bust or just bad luck?

Marner because he wasn't McDavid. We had the best odds going into the last ping pong ball.

Tyler Seguin because we finished second last and didn't have a first rounder for the next 2 season. Babcock's reference to rebuilding pain was nothing compared to finishing second last with no draft picks.

As for guys we actually drafted I don't how you to determine who's worst if neither make it.
