I'd say a comparable situation (not player) would be Chris Kreider. I remember the write up in THN's draft edition described scouting his games like watching Gretzky at a pick up game, does he look impressive because he actually is, or because the competition makes him look good. Fast forward to his first season at BC and the numbers were solid (17-9-26 in 40 games) for a rook, but not mind blowing by any means. Jankowski chose the right path to develop the biggest weakness to his game (size and strength, light schedule and university training facility should remedy that).

With that said, as an Oiler fan I'm hoping he is Riley Nash v2.0.
