Do management think the crop of star players at the NHL level will still be going strong in 7-8 years? That's my problem with picks like Jankowski and Gaudreau. They may pan out, but not for a long time.
gaudreau was a 4th round pick. not exactly "off the board".

jankowski was going in th first or early second. So wasnt much of a reach at 21 either. HF likes to hate on flames. Seems like popular thing to do.

If u want high end talent but never pick top 5 these boom/bust typeare best way.
