It Is “Nitty-Gritty” Time For Jimmy Vesey

from Stephen Harris of the Boston Herald,

As of midnight Monday, the high-scoring left winger will become an unrestricted free agent, and, probably, the richest member of the Harvard Class of ’16.

Likely all 30 NHL clubs would love to add a 23-year-old player who is hard-working, smart, responsible, very talented (24-22-46 totals in 33 games last season for the Crimson en route to winning the Hobey Baker Award) and, at least in relatively inexpensive for the first two years.

He and his agents and family held a strategy meeting yesterday to nail down that short list and discuss the relative merits of the handful of finalists.
