Lee Fedarleau (sp) on the other hand was an awful pick then and is still an awful pick.
Leaving Parise out of it, the Jessiman pick looks a lot better now after the Crazy Sather Blow Out Sale. With players like Balej, Rachunek, Immonen, Kondratiev, the slew of picks (as well as adding Pock, seeing what Garth Murray is and wildcards like Jonasen and Dawes) there is at least a base of prospects (and more to come with the draft). With at least a better foundation (if for no other reason than in pure quantity), the risk/reward in Jessiman is a lot easier to take.
