The point, which you obviously missed, is that it took those guys years before becoming the players they are/were known for. MDC is probably a bust. I won't argue with anyone on that. He might however be a late bloomer. Just like Bailey. Just like Bert.
So you're point is that because Bails came into the league as an 18 year old, it took him 8 years to get to the point where he is now? Don't get me wrong, I agree he should have had some minor league time. But to sit there and say it took him 8 years to break out because of the age he entered the NHL is ridiculous. A better argument would have been the management that was supposed to develop him him. *cough-Snow-cough*

late blooming is one thing but not having anything is another. Sure Bailey bloomed later but he always showed tremendous skill with puck. he still put up 30-50 points a season early on.

If the few games you have seen MDC has he at ever impressed you with anything?

Bailey was also a 9th overall not a 5th overall. Lets chalk up Strome, MDC and Reinhart as 3 huge busts.
On the positive side we got Barzal, Beau, Nelson and Pulock all in mid to late first round and they have proven way better.
Lee takes the cake for best find in last 10 years.

I'm splitting hairs and I'm not actually being critical here...but I think I'd put Strome in a separate category than MDC/Reinhart. Strome is at least a somewhat-useful, full-time NHL player. The other two have, at best, proven to be bad at the NHL level. At worst, they're not NHL guys ever.

Funny, but I was thinking the same thing. Strome is proving to be a functional bottom 6 NHL forward. Not as much as you'd like from a 5th overall pick, but not in the same category as the other apparent busts.

Well, if it's any consolation, Eberle hasn't been playing particularly well of late.

Top 6 as a whole hasn’t been doing that great but yeah Eberle has been fairly stanky.
