The NHL Draft is fast approaching. The Washington Capitals will have the 23rd selection in the first round on June 30, with seven additional picks spread out over the final six rounds.

However, scouting and selecting players in the draft is not an exact science, even in the first round. For every player who takes off like a rocket, there is a player who crashes like a lead zeppelin. Those players earn the label of "draft bust."

Here is a list of the five biggest draft busts in Washington Capitals history, with one honorable mention. Each player is listed with his position in parentheses, along with the year, round and number of his draft selection (for example: 2013 1-23).
