Jessiman is already more skilled than Rupp is, IMO. Jessiman would look fine on our 4th line banging around, but he wouldn't develop at all. Rupp can do NOTHING out there with the puck. Jessiman at least has a lot of puck skills. Right now I'd actually say that Jessiman is better than Rupp. Just no need to bring him up now. I'd much rather let him develop his offense and use him as a "Rupp-like" guy as a last LAST resort.
