The ECHL might be a stretch.

All signs point to no.

Luckily we draft Jankowskis in the third round.*

*I realize Jankowski is a better prospect.

hey can screw up once

I had high hopes for him--but one of the posters (who has since left this site) sent me a link with about 10 minutes of his play after I asked about him the last time and saw just why the oilers cut him go. It was on either youtube or justintv for awhile

Oh well, you literally can't win them all.

Edit: I would say that Olivier Roy in the 5th round and Hartikainen in the 6th round in 2008 more then make up for this drafting "error"

Wasn't this not even Stu's pick? I thought one of our scouts at the time was really high on him. Or am I remembering wrong?

You're remembering correctly.

There was speculation afterward that the scout that advocated for Hesketh was subsequently canned because of it.

Yeah, I remember hearing Stu talk about a scout that pushed really hard for Hesketh. Not sure who it was.

Hesketh played at Hamline University last year? What the hell is that?

Now I can't stop picturing Ralph Wiggum saying, "when I grow up, I'm going Hamline University."

Haha, I didn't think I needed the sarcasm face. That, and I was happy with my Lowetide made nickname wordplay.
