    Dipietro. Islanders have to pay him 1.5 million a year until 2029 to sit on his couch and do nothing.

    Could also throw in Brian Lawton. First overall in a draft that took LaFontaine 3rd and Yzerman 4th. Neely would go 9th. Lawton lasted 5 seasons in the league.

    He was a miss.....but not the biggest miss ever. Lawton's problem was he went straight from US high school hockey into the NHL, in a day when Americans were given no respect. The kid should've played juniors, or even Olympic hockey, but it was such a surprise that he was drafted #1 that he decided to grab the $$ and not risk his health in development leagues. He had immense talent, it just was never given time to develop.

    Patrik Stefan.....drafted 1st overall in 1999 right ahead of the Sedin's.



    The oilers actually scored after he missed the empty net with 10 seconds left.

    Ville Lameo, ha, but he wasn't a flop because he wasn't never touted to be that good. The Sabres just assumed he would blossom.

    Probably best choice here is Stefan. Dipietro had a couple of good seasons but Stefan never panned out.

    I believe a case could be made for........Gary Bettman! How did this flaming idiot ever become head of the NHL? Whatever progress the league makes, or has made, is IN SPITE of this sniveling, pencil-neck, beady-eyed, pasty-faced bean counter. Have you ever seen him introduced at any stadium in the league? Every single person in the arena BOOS him with all their gusto. That's embarrassing to the league. Enough is enough. Run this little pansy out of town and let's never speak his name again. I vote Cam Neely for new Commish......
    Nomination(s):
    This post was nominated 1 time . To view the nominated thread please click here. People who nominated: Russian Rocket

    He was boo'd after the lockout in 94/95. After that people boo because everyone else boo'd and they have no clue. I for one don't like the money hungry hook nosed mutt butt league most certainly has progressed.
