Sven Baertschi - on of the CHL's top players and owner of the highest PPG in any of the the leagues. Played in the NHL and looked phenomenal in his short time.

Johnny Gaudreau (4th round) - A player who dominated the NCAA as an 18 year old freshman, finishing a single point behind Chris Kreider in scoring. Beanpot tournament MVP.

Laurent Brossoit (6th round) - WHL finals MVP. Top 5 CHL goalie.

If this poor drafting image comes from the Jankowski pick, I have to laugh because it hasn't even been two weeks. There is a lot you can call Feaster out on, but drafting in Calgary, albeit judging from a small sample, has been pretty good so far.
If someone can't judge him negatively for his drafting thus far, wouldn't it stand to reason that judging him positively is also impossible?
