Biggest Draft Busts of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft


The Top TenXW

1Joey Hishon 17th overall Colorado Avalanche

THN prediction: 39th overall.
Now, I'm a Avalanche fan, so I was excited to see who they would draft. When I heard "Joey Hishon" I spent the of the rest of the first round seeing people better than Hishon get drafted. - booklover1

2Mark Visentin 27th overall Phoenix Coyotes

THN prediction: Unrated
This selection has FAIL written all over it. - booklover1

3Dalton Smith 34th overall Columbus Blue Jackets

THN prediction: 85th overall
They could've gotten Kirill Kabanov instead! - booklover1

4Brett Bulmer 39th overall Minnesota Wild

THN prediction: Unrated
In 5 years, this guy will probably stay unknown - booklover1

5Dylan McIlrath 10th overall New York Rangers

THN prediction: 26th overall
Not that this guy is bad, it's just the list of defenceman that were way better than him. Here's who New York could've got who was ranked higher on THN: Cam Fowler, Brandon Gormley, Derek Forbort, Mark Pysyk, Jarred Tinordi, and Alex Petrovic. - booklover1

6Connor Brickley 50th overall Florida Panthers

I found this page by googling Connor Brickley bust. He came to Vermont as the highest draft pick since John LeClair. At the same point in his career, he's at only 40 percent of LeClair's goal production and 34 percent of his point production. He's been a huge part of why UVM has been a giant underachiever and disappointment the last two seasons.

7Curtis Hamilton 48th overall Edmonton Oilers

THN prediction: 96th overall
Edmonton is another team that could've gotten Kabanov. - booklover1

8Christian Thomas 40th overall New York Rangers
9Philip Lane 52nd overall Phoenix Coyotes
10Justin Holl 54th overall Chicago Blackhawks

The Contenders

11Maxwell Reinhart 64th overall Calgary Flames
