The problem with Jessiman is that he looks lost out there quite a bit and he still has the same problem he had against his peers in WJC and Ranger rookie camps, simply put he REALLY struggles to keep up with the pace of higher competition.

The excuses for Jessiman are wearing a little thing and in all honesty players who always have a reason for not meeting expectations usually aren't going to get there.
I disagree. I don't think Jessiman was ever given a chance at Hartford. You really don't know what he could do with a season of 20 to 25 minutes a game. If you are going to stick your neck out and draft a raw, powerforward prospect. You don't play him 10 minutes a game and expect him to improve.
