Actually, he was signed solely to be on the Island.

Had there been no lockout and Jesse hadn't gotten a regular role on the Island in camp, he'd have then been off to Europe.

This was his year to practically be 'given' a job.

In light of that, what a darn shame that it has come to this after he was practically our BEST player in Europe (outside of JT) during the lockout. He was tearing apart the SM-Liiga in October and November.

Bad turn of events for him, because this was his time. He's on a one year contract. He'd have been playing at the moment. Can't see much of a chance of him being resigned this summer in light of all the kids coming up.

Then again, maybe another team signs him this summer and gets lightning in a bottle.
