I was at the draft party with board member Ziggy Stardust. I remember neither one of us wanted Jessiman (I think I wanted Brown and he wanted Getzlaf) Bob mentioned Jessiman by name so I think you were right about DT going for him. Thank God we ended up with Brown, even though we struck out with the other two picks.

Amazing the Kings have three first rounders in a draft loaded with star players and only end up with Brown. Then two years later in a much weaker draft DT ends up drafting two franchise caliber star players.

2003 probably cost DT and Al Murray their jobs, but 2005 atleast salvaged their legacies.
