He throws together stretches of brilliant play...but then it always seems to come undone.

I was jacked when we (Boston) got him originally...but nobody was crying too hard when he was traded.

Not trying to be a troll...just saying not to get hopes up too high on this guy.
Hope he proves me wrong -but it will have to be at the NHL level for me to notice anymore with Jillson.
Yeah, you're right. At 24, he should be a little more steady than he is, and this probably is a stretch. But I'm not concerned about the long run at this point, but rather, I'm just glad he's helping out the Amerks. It's a shame a kid with so much talent can't get his head in the game for the long haul.
