Can't see him turning into a fighter, but will continue being physical in every other way he can.
The key for Jesse has always been simple: Stop fancying himself as a playmaker and start using that body to muck things up and make life miserable for opposing Dmen.
He does that, then the skills and hands he has will lead him to offensive chances as well.
But he has to concentrate on being a mean, dirty-areas worker. Then nothing will stand in the way of an NHL career.
It would be HUGE for the Islanders if this NHL season could still fit in 50 some games as of November and Jesse could come back and be a 10-10-20 player. Just huge.
