"I didn't give myself a chance to look back when I was in Charlotte," Jessiman said. "That's part of being a pro, fighting out of situations you play yourself into. You expect the best out of yourself. Sometimes it doesn't turn out the way you expect. You learn a lot going through the tough situations and obstacles life gives you."
This kid is no Brendl or Lundmark. I really think he gets it. He may be deliberate in his development. But he seems to have the right attitude. I really want to see this kid succeed.

He's saying all the right things. Lets see if it translates into better play. According to Schony so far it has. So far so good. I want to see more goal production....but this is a "Big Man/Power Forward" and that can be a longer process for development. The guy is a month or so shy of 22, so he's got some time. To me it's all about proper coaching and patience. My feeling was that he would stick with the Rangers at around 24/25. Given the fact that he's played so few games at the college level that seems reasonable IMO. If you look at Jason Wards development I think it makes even more sense. Ward is finally beginning to find his potential at 27 years old. Anyway Hugh is one of my favorites and I want him to be a Ranger. I am willing to give Jessiman plenty of time rather than seeing him go somewhere else and fullfill his potential the way Ward is starting to for the Rangers.

The great thing is with the success the team has had, Hugh doesn't need to feel like he's supposed to be some sort of savior.

What is a reasonable expectation for Jessiman? Could he be the good/great scoring power forward we need in two years?

Hugh just needs to play a lot of hockey the next two seasons. Preferably 180+ games.

If Hartford makes the playoffs in both seasons, that's easily conceivable.

Excellent point. I've always wondered what would have come of Manny had he been drafted and developed in that kind of environment.

Imagine if Manny stayed in juniors and played one year in the AHL. Remember his junior stats were not that great, it would have helped his offense.
