Here's the Derek Zona one that I think Chaz was referring to:

Skeptical of Kelly's take? Kings' General Manager Dean Lombardi feels the same way:

"Jack was a thoroughbred out there. But he was all over the place. He was awful as a hockey player. As an athlete, you’re going, wow! Look at the way he skates, shoots, he can pass. But he had no idea where he was going. At times, he was playing forward at Michigan. You had no idea what position he was playing. But he had always been the star and he always got his numbers. Then he turns pro and for the first time, we’re telling him ‘whoa, just make the first pass and learn to play in your own end.’ How about making a read in your own end about the right guy to pick up? He was awful."
Wow, I had never seen that quote from Dean before. That Red Berenson is an awesome coach though.
