As for other players Jessiman might be someone who by December we can write in or write off. It's important that he produce enough where he can play on a scoring line. My fear with him is him being bypassed by any number of others. As for Pock and Girardi--I actually think that Girardi who is a few years younger might someday be a player. I'm more hopeful for him.
Think with Girardi that concerns me is that the kid seemed to play the hockey of his life last season. I could really care less if he wasn't drafted or other factors, but it does concern me that the kid was really a pretty average junior defenseman who suddenly looked really good last year.

Usually kids who are sleepers at least had something to point to at lower levels, I didn't really see that with Girardi. Maybe he becomes a surprise, but there's something about last season that concerns me and doesn't have me convinced.
