How about a little dose of reality here? You are not talking about every day players here. You are listing some elite talents and rather elite players. For every Heatly, there are 10 Jeff Toms. Forsberg? Lindros? Sundin? You are talking about the best of the best, the VERY elite. Heck, in pure talent, Forsberg and Lindros are about the best the NHL has seen since TGO. Roenick? How many drafts turn out players like that? Prims & Holik? How many players in the NHL are comprable? Heatly & Nash are about as talented as any player taken in the last decade.
Point is, before lumping in Jessiman with playes like that, you had better be sure that he is the goods. Otherwise you ruin what could turn out to be a top player. Not every first round draft pick turns out like the players you listed. Actually VERY FEW do. The chances are much greater that Jessiman turns out to be another Glen Murray than he does another Keith Tkachuk. Or Lindros. Or Forsberg. Or Roenick.
Those players are the EXCEPTION and not the rule.
