Of course I only said this not knowing Teravainen was gonna slip to us haha. I was probably one of the few Flames fans that was happy with the pick from Day 1. It took a some time and some exposure to have the rest come around. Jankowski looks like a very modest and humble kid, and I can tell you he is very talented. He is an absolute bean pole however and desperately needs to bulk up. The College route will be perfect for that as its shorter schedule will allow for more gym time, and less weight loss due to hockey.
