Montreal took Chris Higgins out of Yale after two years of college hockey and as a 20 year old.Jessiman needs to learn the pro lifestyle.
The Rangers lost Tytuin last year because of a Sather brain fart. Sather thought he could send Tytuin to Hartford and tried but in doing so activated some clause with the Russian team that owned his rights. If Sather would have just sent him to Guelph where he belonged everything would have been fine. Another year of North American type Hockey. He HAD to go to Russia because of Sather's mishap.
If Jessiman was dominating his college peers then I'd agree with you. He's not. Keeping him at Dartmouth is the right thing to do. Do you want another Blackburn/Malhotra/Lundmark type situation where a player is kept on a team to show the media/fans "look we have young guys on the roster". Then they are nailed to the bench hindering their progress. Wake up and smell the coffee.
