I may be overstating Jessiman's lack of skill..he wasn't without some talent...but the main concern with him was character/softness according to a longtime NHL scout I just asked. His skating never improved either. The scout said McCarron and Jessiman weren't similar prospects at all.

Lots of late first rounders become solid third-line players on good teams..and weren't considered busts.

It's my hope that Montreal's third line is superior to most teams' second lines in a few years...if Mac is playing on a third line with de la Rose and Eller for instance, and they are a dominant force....I'll be satisfied that he didn't "bust". On good teams it's the top 9 that is important...they are often interchangeable.
