Over the years, we have witnessed players come into the NHL and perform remarkably, only to disappear a short time later. I have often wondered how somebody could score 30 goals in the NHL, yet not stick around long enough to get their name stitched on the back of their jersey.
It makes you think, who could be the next player that will succumb to such a fate.
From the Toronto Maple Leafs Nikolai Borschevsky to the Washington Capitals Jim Carey, yes there have been a few that have impressed the fans for a short period of time and then become flashes in the pan.
That being said, here are my picks for the best, or worst, of them—players that lasted about as long as Britney Spears and K-Fed's marriage.
