I'm not totally up on the available players. Who are you referring to?
I doubt Jessiman has anything to do with whether or not we sign the player in question. Jessiman was a 1st round pick in one of the best drafts ever. Missing on him was a huge (no pun intended) mistake.
If we sign some undrafted player out of the ECAC and he doesn't make it, big deal.
Probably the person we SHOULD be going after - Greg Carey.
He's okay. He's a guy who you won't notice much because he plays it safe most of the time. He doesn't try to do more than he's capable usually. He's focused on positional D and keeping his body between the opponent and his net. He's got a little boom in his shot, too.
Marek Hrivik didn't look to be anything special either coming out of juniors, but our scouts identified skills that were hidden by the extremely conservative defensive system his junior team played. Hopefully something similar is going on here.
Looking forward to reports on his play if he signs and goes to HFD.
