At first I wanted TT as well.

But you have a safe pick in Sieloff and the boom/bust pick in Janko rather than the one slightly safer boom/bust pick in TT. Plus TT is a winger not the C that the Flames need still.

With their third a few years ago they nabbed max reinhart who looks good. Brodie was a 4th rounder who looks good. Sven is a stud.
But from Chucko and Pelech to Janko/Gaudreau and Sven, you can definitely see a change in scouting focus. Swift skaters with natural skill rather than big bruisers.
