I'm a bit concerned about him not making the Junior team.

I think its important to understand that Jessiman was drafted with full knowledge that he's a very raw talent. The skills and size are there, but he hasnt translated that on the ice just yet, or perhaps he's just starting to do that now. That may explain why he had a dissapointing showing at the Team USA camp this past summer. After one year of college hockey, he might have been a little overwhelmed at the camp. If Team USA selected its roster just on raw talent and potential, Hugh would've been on it, but you dont get selected automatically just cause you were a high draft pick. You have to earn it, and obviously he didnt. I believe he's gonna develop very slowly, and wont even challenge for a spot on the Rangers until his 4 years in Dartmouth are over. However, the fact that he's leading the ECAC in PPG as a sophomore is very encouraging and I hope he keeps it up and continues to improve.

I'm sure Jessiman is more disappointed than you. He will work even harder knowing he didn't make that team. I think that team was mostly selected for it's great chemistry. Most of the players on that team were on the same team that won the Under 18 Junior Title a few years ago. It worked so I don't thave a problem with it. Jessiman will be fine.

In Jessiman's defense the team won gold for a reason, it was a very good roster.

Without opening up another debate on whether he was the right player to pick, a team who picks jessiman is interested in the player that he will become, not what he is.

I agree, it's just that this type of player takes time. That is, if he becomes a great Power forward like everyone's hoping for. And this organization is not known for holding onto young players with promise.

Kovalev was kept for awhile, but ..... well, no one wants to hear that one.

I may be mistaken but wasn't he hurt? You can't really do much for the team from the stands.

he wasn't hurt. he just didn't play well during the camp over the summer and us opted to go more with speed than size (and obviously that game plan worked)

I thought try outs were a couple weeks before WCJ?

they were right after the prospect camp in calgary i believe, they were a while ago.

Jessiman didnt play all that hot.

his speed is fine i think he just needs to get faster at the mental part of the game.

That will be his make or break. its too early to tell but he'll either get it with experience or he won't. in his defense you have to understand how far out of nowhere he's come from.
