The cap was not the reason for the Jessiman pick. And, yes, the drafting has picked up, but there has also been more of a safety approach. Everything is a crap shoot, but the mantra seems to have been, let's take a kid who may not be a top line player, but will probaby be a second or a definite third liner. Same with the blue liners. There has not been a swing for the fences pick in quite a while.
