Without his size, does Hugh Jessiman goes as high as he did in the draft
What a nonsensical question. His size is part of what you're paying for when you draft him.
Without his size, would Thornton have been drafted as high as he was?
Agreed. Jessiman was picked as high as he was was because of the combination of size and skill. Who knows how his game would translate if he was 4 inches shorter, and 20 lbs lighter?
I agree, with size would Zach Parise have been drafted so low (for his talent).
Forgive me, just how big is Jessiman?
About 6'5, 215.
^Thats one big dude...and he still has some filling out to do.
Why would you ask this? Of course his huge size is a BIG reason for his draft status....
Glad to see you are proud of your car as well...
Maybe the Kings wouldn't have taken Brian Boyle late in the 1st round, if he weren't 6'7" either. :p
Or maybe Hudler would have been a top ten pick.
Size, obviously, plays an important role.
I wonder how size would help Hudlers pathetic defense, big ego, non team attitude?
I really dont see why its such a big deal with me making this post...he went relatively high in the draft and I was hoping to get some better information other then what his HF profile says...was his size advantage over say a guy like praise, worth drafting him so high...but instead I got bunch of posts saying its a dumb question
Btw, Hugh is now 220lbs and almost 6'6.
As for his draft position - yeah, I think he was taken a little high, but then again he is one big guy who can skate and has good touch around the net. He's a project, almost every year we see this type of prospect selected high based on size(Antropov, Kudroc, Rupp, Mikhnov, etc.).
