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.
As Haatley said JG was a 4th round pick that isn't off the board, and there were 2 other teams willing to take Janko in the first round right after the Flames so he was going in the first. Many say that Janko is comparable to Bjugstad who is arguably the top center in the NCAA he was also drafted out of high school and took half a season to transition to the NCAA. Why would the Flames take Janko because he is follows Bjugstad he could be a top center prospect.
