I was going to make a comment that all is not lost because players like Glen Murray took a lot of time to develope... but even Glen Murray was a pretty good AHL player as a 20/21 year old. The past couple years have been make or break for Hugh and it is looking more and more like he... well... he broke. Anything can happen but a 23 year old 3rd/4th line AHL player is not exactly a good bet to have a successful NHL career without a minor miracle (even if he is big). It really looks like Jessiman benefited from Stempniak more than vice versa back in their Dartmouth days. Would have been nice if the scouting staff while looking at Hugh had looked at Stempniak. I saw both play with Dartmouth and, though hind sight is 20/20, it isn't too surprising that Stempniak is doing well as a pro.
