Just one thing. I believe Lee Falardeau was a second round pick, not a first round pick. He was their first pick that year because the Rangers traded their first rounder I believe in the Bure deal.
Derek Wilkinson, Charlotte’s head coach, predicted, however, that Falardeau’s tenure with the team would be short-lived. He was correct. On Nov. 8, after just six games with the Checkers, Falardeau was called up to Hartford.
According to Wilkinson, Jessiman has made great improvement in his positioning without the puck, and will not be in the league long if he continues to play as he has recently.
