Rattie proved this year he could score in the CHL, lets see how Jankowski does against quality competition first.
Well to hear him talk, he has a quiet confidence that suggests that he feels he's gonna do pretty good. That's why he skipped the USHL; he feels like he's passed that stage, though not in an arrogant way.

Also by trading down, Calgary also picked up Patrick Sieloff. That's someone you'll be familiar with next year since you follow the OHL. He was called by many as the best open ice hitter in the draft, and to even mentioned alongside Dumba in that regard says a lot, let alone people saying he's a better hitter.

Calgary has lots of guys like that that fly under the radar. Their recent draft history has them trending upwards, and I think that anyone that disagrees just isn't paying enough attention. Management is doing a much better job than HFBoards thinks/wishes.
