I think its safe to start using the word BUST. Bad picks like this absolutley kills an organization.

At the start of the season he was getting top 2 line minutes because he had a good preseason. I guess his play got worse as the season went on or others passed him in the dept chart.

Like HappyHour said...I think its safe to start calling him a bust...hes not making any improvements.

No use in this thread...

....Forget recalling the names of good players who came after him. He's grown, played, and busted.

So for the second year in a row he gets sent to Charlotte? What's wrong with this guy?

Maybe it's worth calling him up to the Rangers for a few games, putting him on a 4th line with Hollweg-Betts and basically saying "sink or swim"

You win some...

you lose some...Can't hold out much hope for Jessiman at this point. It was a calculated risk, perhaps not one worth taking, but nonetheless, it was calculated.

Yeah, there were others around, but I'd venture to guess that the Rangers weren't the only ones who passed on certain players.

I still say...

the way to look at the draft is the entire draft...in 2000, Sather could've picked Chris Berti in the seventh round, and there are others in the 2003 first round that you could've gone wrong with.

But man, you hate not getting that guy in the first round.

For me it's context.

12th pick, deep draft, first round, team hasn't had a first round pick in 2 of 3 previous drafts, really reaching for something in that slot.

Just bad asset management. Just as I give this team credit for their late round finds, I'm past the point of excusing many of their early round selections.

I'm willing to go with the win some, lose some approach provided the Rangers actually start winning some with their HIGH picks. Some aren't their faults (see Blackburn) but you also have to give yourself some wiggle room for when unfortunate events like that happen.

Right now the only thing holding up the 02 and 03 drafts is Prucha (and the hope they is around long enough to turn it around) and the crossed fingers that Dawes and Baranka turn into NHL'ers.

If all those pieces fall into piece the Rangers MIGHT be able to salvage an only slightly below average draft from those two combined years.

Unacceptable.

The problem is that there were better choices to be made at that time. There were prospects who were considered as having a much better chance of reaching the NHL.

Don't even get me started with the Getzlaf talk.

All I can say is, I would KILL to have this guy centering a line on our team right now. The guys shot is a rocket!

Ehh, I'm not totally giving up on Jessiman. He'll likely never be a star, but he could still be a solid two-way forward. I think he needs to be traded somewhere else though, where he doesn't carry the expectations of a first round pick.

Call me naive, but I still see the talent and the passion to succeed.

I will agree though, not a good pick, at the time or in retrospect.

What's hurt Jessiman is his head for the game. He doesn't really have one.

If he at least seemed to be able to follow the game you'd say that maybe with his size he could turn into a Jason Ward type.

The problem is that his skills really aren't that exceptional and his vision for the game/hockey sense is really limited.

You can really see it when you watch him. He's bailed out sometimes because he is just so darn big, but he really just doesn't seem to be able to keep up with the game or the play of higher end talent.

Sadly that's been the problem dating back to his WJC camp days and his rookie camp days. It hasn't improved with time and to be an NHL player you have to have one of two things or a combination of these two things: skill and understanding.

Jessiman just really doesn't seem to have an abundance of either and that doesn't paint an exceptionally good picture.

And maybe, somehow, he becomes a marginal player for someone else (aka Jason Ward) but that doesn't do anything for the Rangers and frankly I care more about the Rangers than I do about Hugh's career.

Oh wow, it's good to know that everyone has access to a recap of the 2003 draft, and can name all of the players better than Jessiman. I think we've have about 30 threads on this... Why keep going with it?
