NYR's just dont takes risks and develop their players on the top line, take Prucha he should be on the top line with Jagr, Developing him with the best player on the team offensively who he has chemistry with, instead he is bounced around and his powerplay time taken away and people wonder why he isnt producing.
They also load the team with 'vets' who havnt really established themselves or are shells of their prime and continue to play them when there are options that are younger with higher upsides who can't get to the upper levels as they have to learn in the AHL.
While this might very well be true in general, what does it have to do with Jessiman? It doesn't appear that any of what you wrote applies to Jessiman and very honestly, I don't see where Jessiman has been mishandled by the organization.
