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.
When the Flames were going after tough, western Canadian grinders, the team drafted terribly. Picks like Chucko, Pelech, they all amounted to nothing.

If we're going to pick after 10, I'd rather go full boom or bust. 3rd and 4th liners can easily be found in free agency.
