I hope this means that management is seeing some positive upgrade in Hugh's progression as a Pro..

I still have my doubts. Id rather have Graham called up instead, he is playing well at the ECHL level.

Graham is putting up great GPG numbers in Charlotte and is two years younger than Jessimen.

Jessiman will score 3 points in his first 4 games back and then do nothing again.

I'll say two things to that:

First, and most importantly, Jessiman's situation reflects poorly on management, and they're going to give him the benefit of the doubt when compared to another player.

Jessiman is an '84 and Graham is a late '85. The time horizon for both is significantly different and thus the Rangers are likely more inclined to go with the player that has less time left.

With all this said, I'm not sure how many of you have actually see that many Checkers' games this season, which leads me to believe a lot of this opposition to Hugh is merely subjective criticism to a player that failed to meet exceedingly high expectations.

It is not exceedingly high expectations for a player drafted that highly to be able to excel at the AHL level. Those are very low expectations and to date he cannot even reach these low expectations.

Do you really want to argue about this? Really?

I swear that sometimes you insist on creating an argument out of thin air.

Thanks for your participation...

Summary:
  1. You gave an opinion.
  2. I disagreed with it.
  3. You posted an obnoxious statement.

Wow...

Jessiman's been down there for 20 games? The positive is he's scoring at a PPG clip...the negative is, his numbers look pretty similar to his numbers last he was down in Charlotte. Unfortunately, as I think BigE alluded to, I cannot say if he had a bunch of hard-working goals, if he had any help, if he was a physical force, or what else, because I've seen zero Charlotte games. I look forward to seeing him play this weekend in Hartford though. Is there hope for the kid? Who knows, but if he plays well and earns spots, then great for him.

Shouldn't your draft number be irrelevant once you have been drafted? I don't think too many prospect systems base development on the round the player was drafted in... I'd tend to think they base it more on needs and accomplishments.

Even if Graham scores more in the ECHL, Jessiman are closer to the NHL.

Bruce have become such a project with the new rules. He can't move nearly well enough to keep up in the AHL, or atleast couldn't when I saw him there the last time he were up.

Graham skates like a normal kid who is 6'6, thoose very seldom makes it... He handles the puck well, he got good instincts, a good shots and sees the ice well, but for him its all about the skating. Just now it arne't even close to be decent at the AHL level, so I have no problem playing him at a level were he can play major minutes and contribute, he will need that.

You need to be a extreme physical talent to be 6'6 and be able to skate well. Its so tough on the abs and back muscles. Jessiman is that for a kid who is 65, he got nothing else, but he moves well without any real speed, he don't look like a bent over drunk. Graham don't got it, and I think its extremely questionable that he will be able to get his body to that level.

I hate to point this out, because I'm rooting for Hugh, but... Isbister was called up to the big club on the same day so there was room for another player at HFD - in other words, it's great that of everyone on Charlotte he got the call, but it's not like he FORCED his way into the lineup at the expense of one of HFDs 3rd liners.

In a separate note, Isbister's call up cannot bode well for a quick return by Shanny.

Not that any of us expected one.

Maybe it doesn't boad well for a quick Hossa return or Krog start instead.

I think where a player is drafted is in direct correlation to the expectations management and fans have of that player. You can't have the same expectations of a 1st rounder and a 5th rounder. In reality, the fifth rounder may turn out better but that's a different story.

I hope Hugh is given real minutes and not 7 minutes a game. I also hope they give Hugh a Center that is creative. If Schoenfeld commits to that, I believe he will be a productive player. If not, he will get zero points and everyone on this board will roast him.

I am actually not happy with this move, as Jessiman was doing well in Charlotte and was regaining confidence, but he was not dominant at this level. Now he gets called up to Hartford because there is a spot. My question is, what happens when management is ready to send Isbister back, either because of trades or return from injuries? Does Jessiman get sent back to the ECHL if he is playing okay in the AHL, but not great? If so, this is bad for Jessiman's development and I am opposed to it. However, there is another thought here, and it may have nothing to do with Jessiman's development. He might be being shopped as part of a deal, and having him in the AHL may increase his value (a little).
