Jessiman's still seems to be half a step behind the game, and his shot isn't exactly one that drives fear into the opponent's netminders. He has picked up his physical play, but he doesn't have that edge you look for in a prototypical power forward.

I'm hoping he pans out...but at this stage I have serious doubts as to whether he'll ever be an NHL regular, let alone a 20 goal scorer.
I'm just going to make believe I never read this post and continue my life where I win the MegaMillions lotto tomorrow night, and Jessiman joins the Rangers in 2-3 years as a prolific high scoring power forward. Yes, ignorance is bliss.
